Theft of flags and mascotts has always been an annoying problem within our network and the members of the Comité directeur have finally stepped up to start mapping how big this problem actually is. That’s why today the members of the Comité Directeur announced that the Flag Watch was formed.

The flag watch acknowledges that AEGEE strives for a more borderless Europe, but not for a more flagless Europe. Flag Watch member Zhenya explains: “We have a team of volunteers to observe plenaries, prytania and progress meetings while tracking flag stealing acts. We cooperate closely with the Chair team. Furthermore, participants had to enter in their application if they will bring a flag to the agora. A presentation about our findings, including our punishment dance for losing our own flag will be given during the closing plenary.”

If you ever feel flagsually harassed, feel free to contact this Agora’s Flag Person. The Emergency Flag number is on the back of your badge underneath the Safe Person.

PLEASE NOTE: The Silver Times is a website of satire. We strive to liven up your AEGEE experience by making satirical articles about anything that happens in our association, and we reserve the right to humorise and satirise any working group, project group, interest group or other European Body. Sexual Harassment itself is however very much not a funny thing. If you ever feel unsafe or unconfortable around someones advancements, please immediately get in touch with the safe person of Agora Salerno.
