An ex-soldier who painted a St George’s flag on his front door was ordered to cover it up by his landlords who claim it could be considered ‘offensive’ and may bring ‘distress’ to neighbours.

Steven Rolfe, 52, painted the red and white colours of the English flag upon on his rented home in Preston, Lancashire, in 2003. He also said he put up hanging baskets to celebrate his love of England and mark his former career in the forces.

But despite being runner-up in a council ‘best kept house’ competition, he has now received a letter ten years on from an official at property management firm Places for People saying neighbours could be ‘alarmed’ by the symbol.

The letter also warned the design could place him in a catagory of ‘nuisance neighbours’ and said it could mean him being evicted if he failed to cover it up.

The landlords have now apologised for calling the flag ‘offensive’ but said Mr Rolfe must still repaint the door because he does not have the proper permission and the door ‘does not meet our decoration specifications’.
