​The Commonwealth flag has now replaced all European flags around Gibraltar

The Commonwealth flag has now replaced all European flags around Gibraltar.

The official ceremony to lower the EU flag at the frontier was held at midnight on Friday as Gibraltar, together with the UK, left the European Union. However some EU flags were lowered during the course of the day on Friday, so that all official buildings and tourist sites had seen the flag replaced by the close of business on Friday. 

The Commonwealth flag is also up inside all Government offices, including civil service departments and Ministers' offices.
