The National British Police administration have advised England fans attending the World Cup not to display the flag of St George over fears it will be seen as antagonistic to their Russian hosts.
Top police chief, Mark Roberts will be traveling to Russia with a team of fellow officers to work with the Russian Police Force to protect up to 10,000 England fans that will be attending the highly anticipated tournament.

Speaking in an interview with Britain’s Times newspaper, Mr. Roberts said: “I think people need to be really careful with flags. It can come across as almost imperialistic… and can cause antagonism. We really urge some caution about people putting flags out and waving them about in public. We would not expect people to come across to this country, get drunk and drape flags on the Cenotaph (the memorial to Britain’s national war dead) so we need to extend the same courtesy when we go abroad.”
