Battle Town Council unveils the new town flag.

BATTLE’S new town flag made its first ever public appearance at the Battle Town Council meeting on Tuesday night.

The wind and rain in the early part of the day gave way to evening sunshine as council Chairman Ron Harris hauled the flag to the top of the flagpole at The Almonry.

He told those gathered that previous Chairman David Hussey had been a great champion for the idea of a town flag and it was fitting that, by coincidence, the flag was raised on the same day as David’s funeral.
