Raising a flag for Herefordshire

Pupils at Luston Primary School have designed a flag chosen to represent the county which formed part of a column where HRH the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William led a procession for the celebration of 800th anniversary of Magna Carta on 15 June.

The 2015 Flag Project, run by Parliament in collaboration with artist Jonathan Parsons, invited schools from across the UK to collaboratively create a shared picture of democracy by designing a flag for a unique digital exhibition. The chosen design depicts several illustrations which epitomise some of the main attributes of Herefordshire.

The flag was unveiled during a visit by the Vice Lord Lieutenant, High Sheriff, Bishop, Jesse Norman MP, Herefordshire Council chairman, Councillor Wilcox and the Mayor of Hereford amongst others from Herefordshire on Magna Carta celebrations at Runnymede on 15 June. 

Councillor Wilcox said, ‘I’m very proud the flag from Luston Primary School had been chosen to be part of this very prestigious event. I shall be writing to the principal congratulating her pupils on the design and helping to show the county to good advantage in such a worthwhile way on a national footing.’
