Fury over Catalan flag appearing on Alicante’s tourism website

UP IN ARMS: The PP’s Luis Barcala

THE Partido Popular (PP) party in Alicante is up in arms over a Catalan flag on the municipal tourism website, and has demanded explanations.

The flag appeared by mistake on the button to change the language to Valencian and has now been removed, however it has sparked a heated political row.

PP spokesman Luis Barcala demanded clarification and hinted that the incident could well have been part of a plot to force Alicante to accept and display Catalan symbols and signs.

Socialist Tourism Councillor Eva Montesinos was quick to hit back, claiming that the flag had been there for four years (since times when PP was in power in the city) and said therefore it was the PP party which should explain exactly why they put it there.
