Make it a specific offence to desecrate national flags, symbols and monuments

Petition Details

This petition seeks the introduction of new legislation to make it an offence in the UK to desecrate the national flag, any associated national flags, national monuments and symbols.

Additional Information

It is greatly offensive and upsetting to many people to have integral parts of our national identity desecrated. Despite this happening within plain sight of the public and the police, it often goes completely unanswered. Our culture and history should be protected in the UK by law, and that is the aim of this petition.
