Shine a light on lamp-post flags

I RECENTLY visited Northern Ireland for the first time with my family. We visited many famous places, like the Giant's Causeway.

However, we noticed a rather strange thing in most towns and in Belfast: there were many different flags attached to lamp-posts.

We have never seen this either in Germany, or in England. Is there a reason for this?

Maybe there is a shortage of flag poles in Northern Ireland?
