2015 marks the 750th anniversary of the Montfort Parliament, where elected representatives of the shires and boroughs came together for the first time. To mark this important year, the 2015 Flag Project invites Primary school students (ages 7-11) across the UK to design a flag to represent their constituency. Explore the fantastic designs submitted by county, by constituency or by using the interactive map. Click on a flag to take a closer look and find out the inspiration behind the design, or upload your own flag to add to this unique collection.

Explanation as to the reasoning behind the design: The green was chosen to represent the agriculture that our area is known for. The blue was chosen to represent the rivers that are in our region: Ancholme, Ouse, Trent and Humber. The wheat represents the large number of farms that grow cereal crops, with the tractor also referring to the farming community which is strong in our area too. The windmill refers to the large number of windmills that were present in the Brigg and Goole area, whilst also making reference to the recent building of electricity generating wind turbines. How the final design was decided: All the children in Year 6 were told about the project. We discussed the symbolism present in many flags today, and mind mapped what symbols could represent our area. All the children made their own designs. The two Year 6 teachers then narrowed it down to the top 3 and worked with the children to combine the best parts of all their flags - the product being our submitted flag design.
