BBC Newsline’s Mark Simpson reports from Holywood, Co. Down on the latest fleg controversy.

Police were called to investigate a complaint about a European flag flying in Rory McIlroy’s home town in County Down during the Ryder Cup.

It was flown at a house in Holywood where a Ryder Cup party was held.

The owner of the house was stunned when two police officers arrived at his door on Sunday morning.

In a post on Facebook, he said that the person who complained thought it was an Arabic flag.

The newly conserved Starry Plough flag that once flew over the Imperial Hotel (now Clerys) during the 1916 Rising, unveiled at the National Museum of Ireland, Dublin, last night.

The conservation was funded, in conjunction with National Museum of Ireland, by the Labour Party as part of its centenary celebrations.
