No sign of a flag pole. Building still used by fire service and downstairs is a museum.

If you look from the castle esplanade there is this enormous flag pole. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure its on the adjacent Art College. Makes you wonder though...

More of an Antennae.. I think a flag would break it. Smashing historic building, apparently still Fire Brigade HQ.

Lauriston Place. Not sure an actual flagstaff survives. Building now houses museum of preserved vintage fire engines.
