Historic county flags raised in day of national celebration

The flags of 52 historic counties will fly proudly at the heart of government as the nation celebrates our shared heritage to mark Historic County Flag Day.

All 52 registered historic county flags have been hoisted in Parliament Square in resplendent celebration as festivities take place in cities, towns and villages across England, Scotland and Wales. The government says that the flags serve as a reminder of our rich history and is part of the government’s mission to celebrate the traditions that bind our communities together and instil pride in the places we live as we build back better from the pandemic.

Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick said: “Today is an opportunity to celebrate the rich tapestry of our shared national heritage. These flags represent local traditions and stories from every corner of Great Britain which people rightly take pride in. I am proud to see such an explosion of colour in Parliament Square on Historic County Flags Day in celebration of all that binds us together.”
