About Red Flag

Brussels Office Since


Firm Description

Red Flag is a global strategic communications, public affairs and campaigns agency with a strong track record of delivering impactful campaigns. Red Flag was founded on the idea that politics, regulation and global movements are becoming more difficult for companies and interest groups to understand and navigate. Traditional strategies – built on evidence and access – struggle in fast-moving environments that reward novelty and noise. Unlocking policy problems demands much wider campaigning approaches that attach political risk and reward to decisions – by driving media attention, citizen engagement and online debate. We are a multi-award-winning campaigns and issues management agency with a strong record of representing trade associations, companies and organisations in Europe and globally.

Ownership Structure

Independent, management owned.

International Network

Red Flag runs its global operations from a network of five offices: Brussels, Dublin, London, Washington DC and Cape Town.

Key Strengths

Red Flag solves business-critical problems for some of the world’s largest companies and trade associations. Our teams are expert strategists and campaigners. Our clients win in politics because we anticipate, interpret and tackle risk.

We operate at the intersection of digital campaigning, strategic media and political advocacy, understanding how strengths in one can be leveraged to solve problems in another.

Our EU Affairs team works with the biggest organisations, corporations and NGOs from across the world to shape stakeholder and public opinion about an issue or problem with the goal of raising awareness, changing perceptions and influencing public policy.

Red Flag gathers reliable intelligence, tests it, analyses it, and presents our clients with recommendations. We ensure that every threat to our clients is identified and addressed, and every opportunity is capitalised upon.
