I have been shamed into reproducing the NILT survey results on the flying of flags (flegs) from the 2012 survey. I hadn’t realised they had not been published widely before, particularly on Slugger or the Bel Tel so here they are now:

The question?

In general, would you, or do you support flag flying on lampposts in your own neighbourhood?
All Men Women Catholic Protestant
Yes 16% 13% 19% 11% 25%
No 74% 76% 72% 80% 65%
Other 5% 6% 5% 5% 5%
Don’t know 5% 5% 5% 5% 6%

I’ve put together a graph to indicate these results:

Flag waving

So. The next time you see a town or community bedecked in “flegs” here’s the facts  as per the NILT survey anyhow, for what thats worth. Comments as always, are very welcome.
