And it will be their own flag.
But the town council's Finance committee said on Monday evening that the almost £1,400 costs for a specific Royston flag should be met from public donations.
The idea was raised by Cllr Rod Kennedy, who said it would have been appropriate for the town council to be able to have its own flag at half-mast when former mayor Cllr Peter Lill died in May.
