The Home Office does not collect specific statistics on the number of people in the UK who have been (a) investigated or (b) charged with displaying the flag or other symbols of Hezbollah or other proscribed organisations.

It is an offence under Section 13 of the Terrorism Act 2000 to carry or display articles supporting a proscribed organisation. Data relating to this offence is included with Sections 11 and 12 of the Act in the publication ‘Operation of Police Powers under the Terrorism Act 2000’.

The most recent publication up to year ending March 2020, was published on 11 June on the GOV.UK website: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/operation-of-police-powers-under-the-terrorism-act-2000-financial-year-ending-march-2020
