The decision will come into effect on Wednesday at 10am.

Manama: The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) flag will be flown along the Bahraini flag at the borders and in all places related to common GCC activities, the government said on Sunday.

The decision will come into effect on Wednesday at 10am, according to a statement released following the weekly meeting.

“The new flag rule is in line with the decision taken by the 31st GCC summit in Abu Dhabi,” the government said.

A large number of Bahrainis have been pushing for closer integration of their country in the six-member alliance that also includes Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

The GCC was launched in 1981 in Abu Dhabi.
