MEMBERS of Royston Town Council are looking to fly the flag.
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.
And Cllr Craig Doel said: "There is not enough flag-waving."
The flag pole outside the town hall is the property of North Herts District Council which usually determines when a flag will be raised.

The committee said, however, that a pole could be attached to the town hall.
Cllr Kennedy added: "We should be proud of our flag in this country."
And Cllr Peter Burt said the idea of producing a town flag should be encouraged.
There are about 20 days during the year when such a flag could be raised.
