100 days to go to Somerset Day 2021
With just 100 days to go (from Sunday 31st January) before this year’s celebrations, the organisers of Somerset Day are hoping that this year the county will be turned into a sea of Somerset flags – and will be encouraging everyone to Fly the Flag for Somerset!
Whether it’s the distinctive Somerset flag with its bright red dragon waving from a flagpole, or your own painted picture in your front window, this is the time to be Flying the Flag for Somerset.
Somerset Day founder Nigel Muers-Raby explains, “What better way to evoke our passion for Somerset as we move out of Covid restrictions than by looking forward with a splash of colour with our county flag?
“We’d love to see Somerset turned into a sea of flags – flying from public buildings, flagpoles in towns and villages, or bunting in your front garden.
“Over the next few weeks and months we’ll be putting ideas and suggestions onto our website as to how people can get involved, including templates for creating your own flag.”
Between now and 11th May, Somerset Day’s website and its social channels will be continually updated with new information on how everyone can take part in the campaign to Fly the Flag for Somerset.
