The “I Love Hackney” badge designed after the EU flag is part of a political and social campaign led by Hackney mayor Philip Glanville and launched on 26th September 2017. The initiative aims to show support and valorisation of EU citizens working and living in Hackney, as the council had the third highest Remain vote in UK, precisely 78.5%. The mayor has invited EU citizen to share their stories and connections with the Hackney council in exchange for a "I love Hackney" badge.
