Iron Maiden flag rocks Spanish town hall | World news | The Guardian
Basque separatist councillors insist on hanging the Basque flag on their desks during debates, upsetting other politicians at the town hall. Most dislike the idea of the Navarre region being treated as part of the Basque country.
The Socialists have responded by hanging an Iron Maiden flag on their desks. The Socialist leader, JosÃ© Luis Uriz, said: “The Iron Maiden flag means a lot to me. If I have to put up with their flag, they’ll have to put up with Eddie’s face.”
The conservative Navarrese People’s Union party has joined the protest. Its councillors now hang the flag of the local La Liga football club, Osasuna, from their desks.
