Edinburgh Surrenders?


Apparently, an artist with no apparent knowledge of vexillology (or maybe he does???) has a great idea to foist a “special” flag upon the skyline of Edinburgh during The Fringe:

IT WAS billed as an attempt to unite Scotland’s capital in a collective welcome to the tens of thousands of visitors ­descending for the world’s biggest arts festival.

But a leading artist’s efforts to persuade dozens of institutions to hoist a simple white flag bearing the simple message “hello” have fallen foul of red tape and bureaucracy at three of the city’s most prominent landmarks. (The Scotsman)

I’m just a novice vexillologist, but doesn’t a white flag indicate surrender? Does the capital of  Scotland want to send that message?
