DESIGN A FLAG FOR HEREFORDSHIRE COMPETITION

Somebody from Bodenham could be responsible for the winning design of Herefordshire’s official flag.

Over the past ten years nearly all the historic counties of England have acquired their own community flag. Herefordshire is one of just three exceptions. There are already some existing "Herefordshire flags" and a coat of arms. But this can only be flown with permission. And the flags you might have seen were chosen only by their designers and aren’t official.

The
Design a Flag for Herefordshire Competition will not only give us a great opportunity to celebrate together everything we love about our County but ultimately will ensure that we get our own flag, free for all to fly anywhere, forever more.

Every entry will be seen and judged by a panel. The best entries will be short-listed and then the people of Herefordshire will decide the winner. The winning entry will be officially registered as the county flag, credited to the designer, and make its debut at an unveiling celebration in the City.

There is no fee and anyone can enter (though under-16s will need parent/ guardian/ adult consent). Full rules and guidelines are now available, with entries being accepted from 1st March with a closing date of 15th April 2019. The short list and eventual winner will be announced in the summer.

To complement the Competition, a series of
FREE high-quality creative workshops will be taking place across Herefordshire, where the professional artists will be taking ‘Pride in Herefordshire’ as their creative stimulus and will guide participants through creative exploration of varying media.

To see the competition poster and also details of when and where the workshops are being held please click on the ‘more details’ link below. The workshops are open to all ages.

For further details and enquiries regarding the competition and workshops please email: herefordshireflag@gmail.com.

The Project has received grants from the Friends of Herefordshire Museums and Arts and Herefordshire’s a Great Place

The Competition is being administered by ignite CIC and managed by The Herefordshire Flag Committee (which includes representatives of Herefordshire Cultural Partnership's Strategic Board, Herefordshire Council, the Flag Institute and ignite CIC.)
