Exactly the same thing has recently happened in New South Wales (Australia).
All schools are required by law to fly an Australian flag, at their own expense.
Every school I know of always did, but now its THE LAW.
When there are so many schools in need of staff and basic teaching equipment, I think this burst of patriotism is a little unseemly.
