A Palestine flag that was painted on trig beacons and rocks along the path and a bench on Lion’s Head in Cape Town has set tongues wagging, with SANParks warning it is forbidden to do so on its property.

Pictures of the graffiti were posted on social media, with many calling for SANParks staff to intervene and remove it, while others said it should stay.

SANParks spokesperson Lauren Howard-Clayton said the flag was painted last Thursday morning and the Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) was informed of the incident by midday.
