Q.  Who are Gallowgate Flags?

A.  Gallowgate Flags are a small group of season ticket holders based in The Corner and Gallowgate End.    We are on open organisation without membership.  Our sole aim is to support Newcastle United through visual pre-match displays.  We are always looking for new volunteers to help on match days.    If you're interested then please e-mail contact@gallowgateflags.co.uk and we'll put you in touch with the other people involved.

A.  Yes we rely on the understanding and support of Newcastle United.  However are an independent organisation and displays are assembled without input or financial backing from the club.

Q.  What is the money raised by supporters spent on?

A.  We will publish the costs and receipts of all flags bought through social media and this website.  All money will be spent on flags.  'Gofundme' take 5% off all donations as a fee as well 0.23p per donation and 2.9% of the donation as a transfer fee.

Q.  What should I do if I want to bring a flag to a game?

A.  Ensure the flag is fire retardant.  Our aim is to encourage a fan culture for visual displays through flags.  We recommend using The Flagman (local supplier) or Ultra-Shop (international supplier) though there are many flag suppliers available.

Q.  Why isn't there Leazes End/East Stand Flags?

A.  We'd love there to be organisations like us across the ground. It only needs 10-15 match going volunteers.  If you want to set this up, get in touch and we'll help whatever way we can.
