Why would they refuse a flag/banner? Bad language is it? Fire Cert?

The percentage of people taking flags/banners to the game that read this thread must be extremely low vs the overall number going to the match.

All sorts of reasons

Not understanding something and default is to refuse
Words can mean different things in different languages.
symbols or other things on the flag can be deemed offensive
The larger flags need an EU firecert these days for pretty much any EU country.  These are always added by flagman and the various EU companies but not in place for some made in China.
Certain countries can be very sensitive regarding even the smallest patch referencing another country.

Gary, you’ve already said this is not needed, its not an FAI request. You are doing this off your own bat. Why? Theres no need. You are now compiling a database of flags/banners . 

Im sorry and don’t mean to be rude, but there is no need for this and I doubt highly if its part of your remit.

I'm doing it because there have been issues in a few places now with banners 

Obviously totally optional and it is just a document with lots of photos and dimensions in each case.  

Anything that potentially makes our fans life easier home or abroad is within the remit so i think it does.  Obviously anyone is free to ignore it.  

I don't see the issue.

Some people moan about anything.

It's quite obvious that from reading gspains posts, a few people he knew has got hassle bringing flags in. He's obviously trying to ensure that doesn't happen to them again - and trying to help others (that want the help) that have had similar issues or concerns while at it.

Seems as simple as that to me,

Please explain what the flag means? 

Also don't see the need to put a Fr Ted or Simpsons quote on flags.

These flags are getting progressively worse. Jesus Christ. And apart from the sh*te content, they look horrible too. What is with that template they all seem to use with the weird green and orange with black through it?
They finally did it man... They killed my f**kin' car...

Glad it received such a backlash online and was fooked out. Hopefully acts as a deterrent for people thinking of creating something as crap going forward

The owner's of it clearly lack self-awareness as much as they lack a sense of humour
