Use of flags

Guidance for the use of flags at Clarence Park

Clarence Park upholds the highest standards of Health and Safety. The following guidance is in line with the stadium’s grounds regulations.

We know that many supporters like to display flags at football matches and Clarence Park will always be as accommodating as possible.

Flags are not generally confiscated, however, flags are prohibited from the West (Main) Stand Complex also the obstruction of gangways, access routes, exits and entrances, health and safety signage, advertising boards and stairways is strictly forbidden – In the event of an emergency we must have all access and exit points clear.

St Albans City Football Club reserves the right to confiscate flags if they are very large or may compromise public safety, obscure someone’s view, a camera position or if a flag carries offensive, discriminatory or inflammatory messaging.

Flagpoles greater than 1m in length will not allowed.

Any articles that could potentially be used as a weapon and/or compromise public safety are strictly prohibited.

Permission must be sought in advance from the Club to arrange use of the very large supporter flags that are designed to be passed over people’s heads. In such cases the flag must be flame retardant and the organiser bringing the flag into the stadium will need to provide the appropriate H&S certification.

Entry to the Ground shall constitute acceptance of the Ground Regulations.
