What the new Eurovision flag policy means
The restrictive policy on flags at Eurovision has been relaxed, after protests that even singers taking part would not be able to fly their local flags.
The event organiser has announced "a more tolerant approach to other flags as long as the audience respects the non-political nature of the Eurovision Song Contest and do not deliberately attempt to obstruct the camera views."
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) moved to make this change on Friday, overturning a decision made earlier that would have only allowed flags of UN member countries. This was protested against by the ambassador for Palestine as well as the Norwegian contestant who wants to fly the flag of her indigenous Sami people.
Radio Sweden asked EBU press spokesperson Paul Jordan what the new policy means in practise.
