Design a Flag Competition

Flag Competition

01 April 2012

Flags have been around for thousands of years. They were first used for military purposes but have evolved into powerful symbols to represent the unique identity of countries, teams, royal houses, people, places and organizations.

2012, with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, offers a great opportunity for flag waving, and the Parliamentary Flags & Heraldry Committee is actively encouraging communities and regions to develop their own flags to celebrate these significant national events. At present there is no flag registered for the Black Country, yet this is a region with a strong identity. We would like to create a flag that can be used to: - Boost our regional identity - Celebrate the nationally important and significant heritage of our area - Express our pride and distinctive character - Promote our unique environment and its place in the modern world

The Black Country Living Museum invites anyone to submit a design for our regional Black Country flag. The flag will be added to the Flag Institute’s UK Flag Registry and become a recognisable symbol of the Black Country.
