Sorry to say I was wrong.
Pupils demand that the Union flag gets taken down at the school as it's racist (the phrase that some of them used was "there's no black in the Union Jack"), so what does the headmaster do?
Caves in and takes it down along with agreeing to their demands about changing the school uniform policy.

He could have countered that argument with there are few African flags that have white in them, or indeed black either and who does the blue in the Union Jack represent..The Smurfs?
