Arsenal will let supporters to take national flags to Emirates - overturning a previous ban first imposed in December 2006.

The club had banned any national flags - including the cross of St George - after complaints were made about certain regions. Israeli and Cypriot flags are rumoured, in the past, to have provoked objections from some supporters.

But a club statement said this week: "The Club has listened to our supporters on this issue and, based on their input in recent weeks, has decided to revise this policy. For the remainder of the current season, supporters will be allowed to display national flags in Emirates Stadium."
