The government said in a press statement that it wanted to use the moment to “heal divisions, re-unite communities and look forward to the country that we want to build.”
The union jack will be flown from all the flag poles on Parliament Square, No. 10 said. A commemorative Brexit coin will come into circulation, etched with the words “peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations.”
Separately, the Leave Means Leave campaign, headed by Nigel Farage, said it had been granted permission to hold a celebration on Parliament Square that night. ■
