They were planted en masse at the university as part of a public art project coordinated by Mr Adams, who asked members of the public across the country to join in by erecting paper flags in gardens, parks and beaches. His aim, he said, was to create a "unique countrywide artwork by making the largest, the smallest or the most unusually placed field of flags".
