A nuclear resonance fluorescence experiment on 88Sr has been performed with bremsstrahlung of 6.7 MeV endpoint energy. The $\gamma$-ray linear polarisation has been measured with a EUROBALL CLUSTER detector used as a Compton polarimeter. The results indicate positive parity for the J=1 state at 4.742 MeV in 88Sr, in contrast to the previous interpretation as a 1- two-phonon $(2^{+}_{1} \otimes 3^{-}_{1})$state and in conflict with the predictions of the quasiparticle-phonon model. On the basis of such calculations the 1+ state at 3.486 MeV may be considered as the 1+1 one-phonon state and the very strong 1 $^{+}_{1} \rightarrow$ 0+1 deexcitation as proton spin-flip 2p1/2 $\rightarrow$ 2p3/2 transition.
