Flag on the Reichstag: Things Change

How things change, here are three pictures.

That last nicked from the Facebook page of Alexander Alvaro MEP, a (very decent) FDP chap in the European Parliament.

He titles it thusly,
Kaum in Berlin schon weht die Europaflagge über dem Reichstag :-)
or in my translation.
And in Berlin, the European Flag already blows :-)
I find this astonishing, can you imagine a time when a British politicain would be so apparantly proud of an EU flag flying over Westminster?
