Flares give off a flame and cannot be extinguishedWell, there must be a semantic subtlety that I'm not grasping, here.
The authorities, and the media, consistently define it as a “smoke flare”. I've never handled one of the things, and wouldn't be interested in doing so (I find them dipperish, to be honest) My only question here is: are they based on combustion, and do they therefore generate heat?

Throwing either on the pitch is pure stupid behaviour. But have a look at Glastonbury over the weekend to see how many are let off and see how popular they are.
