Concert-goers at the BBC’s Last Night Of The Proms have shown their solidarity with the European Union by waving EU flags during the performance.

In the run-up to the finale of the annual classical music event, it was reported that anti-Brexit campaigners were trying to drum up support for a twist on the usual Union Jack flag-waving opportunity by handing out the EU logo to those in attendance instead.

When the programme aired on Saturday night on BBC Two viewers could see that throughout the evening when the audience waved flags after a performance, the EU flag made a clear appearance in the stalls of the Royal Albert Hall.

Conductor's podium, leader's music stand and at least one desk of cellos… #promsEUflags #BritishandEuropean

There was even one prominently placed on the conductor’s stand, which was decorated with flags from across the globe.

A crowdfunding page raised more than £1,100 to buy the flags, with the annual musical event apparently chosen as it is “televised and has a very high profile”.

An organiser wrote: “As music is such an international activity that benefits greatly from our membership of the EU this event feels an appropriate venue to show UK solidarity with the EU.”

They added: “Concert goers waving EU flags along with the Union Jack would send a message to the world and our own people about how much music lovers value the EU.”
