An English council has been forced to apologise – after flying a Welsh flag to mark St Patrick’s Day.
The red dragon emblem was spotted fluttering above Sheffield Town Hall on Sunday – instead of Ireland’s green, white and orange tricolour flag.
A council spokesperson said a “basic error” was to blame and apologised for any offence called.
They said the issue would be raised with staff and the company responsible.

Social media users reacted with humour at the mistake.
One said: “Easy mistake to make, they are almost identical after all….”
Another added: “I guess many of the councillors have not got to grips with the complexities of the United Kingdom.”
