St Johnstone appeal after giant flag stolen from stadium

Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone has appealed for information after a large flag was stolen from its stadium.

The flag, displayed in the North Stand at McDiarmid Park, was stolen some time after 16:00 on Sunday.

Covering an area approximately 60ft by 20ft, it showed the club's eagle crest with the words "St Johnstone FC"

The 1,200 square foot flag has been an occasional feature of the ground since the mid-1990s.

It is understood it was still in the stadium when the club's under-20s side played their Scottish Youth Cup quarter final on Sunday afternoon, but it later disappeared.

The Perth club posted an appeal for information on its official Twitter account.

The tweet said: "Club would appreciate any info regarding the theft last night of the large SJFC flag from the North Stand. CCTV evidence being used."
