Nelson Mandela: Aberdeen 'plans major celebration of his life'
A major celebration of Nelson Mandela's life could take place in Aberdeen next year.
The 95-year-old former South African president, who died last week, was awarded the Freedom Of The City in 1984 along with his then wife Winnie Mandela.
The council's Town House flag is flying at half mast until after Mr Mandela's funeral on Sunday.
Lord Provost George Adam said he wanted Aberdeen's tribute to be fitting.
He told BBC Scotland: "I am sure we will be doing something to remember the legacy of Nelson Mandela.
"It's reflecting our internationalism as a city, and what he did as a man."
It could be held on Nelson Mandela Day on 18 July.
