Schools invited to design St David's Day flag

Schools across Denbighshire have been invited to join a creative competition to design a flag to commemorate St David's Day.

The competition, being arranged by Denbighshire County Council, invites infant school pupils to get creative and design an A4 sized design (painting, drawing, colouring etc) that would be transformed into a specially created flag to commemorate this special day.

The winning pupil will see his/her design being raised on a flagpole at County Hall, Ruthin, during a special ceremony on Friday 27th February 2015.  The flag will be flown for a few days and once lowered, will be given to the pupil as a memento of their winning design.

Junior school pupils are invited to write a poem about St David's Day.  The winning entry will be read out at the special ceremony at County Hall, and a framed copy presented to the winner at the ceremony.  

The Chairman of Denbighshire, Councillor Brian Blakeley, said: "We want to mark this very important day in the national calendar by engaging with schools and getting pupils to get creative with their thoughts and ideas.

"We have run similar competitions in the past and have been delighted with the response.  We have a lot of creative talent in our schools and we want to nurture that talent further.

"We look forward to receiving the designs and making our winning choices."
