The 15th June 2015 commemorated 800 years since the sealing of the Magna Carta. There seemed no better way to acknowledge this than a celebration at the original signing site, Runnymede. The 80 hand sewn flags we had manufactured were transported to the event and flown on the day of the commemorations.
My flag is designed to represent Ceredigion. It is divided into 3 vertical sections. The middle section has the Welsh dragon to represent Wales. Above the dragon is the sun to represent the warmth of the welcome in Ceredigion. Silhouetted by the sun is the red kite. This bird symbolises the Welsh language. Ceredigion has been a stronghold and both the bird and the language are thriving in the county. The left section has a blue background to represent Cardigan Bay and the right section has a green background to represent the land and the farming tradition of our county.
This flag represents our community and how we shine as individuals. The Oak Leaves represent the plants and life in our community and also how we thrive as learners. They symbolise ‘learning’ and our school motto of ‘being the best we can be.’ We should always strive to be the tallest Oak Tree, reaching out and achieving goals that challenge us. Therefore, this also highlights how our constituency should always strive to ‘be the best’ it can be. Green represents our school colour and how we are central to our village.
St John’s wood is our local area of Westminster at the North West end of Regents Park, home to Lord’s Cricket Ground and Abbey Road Studios. St John’s Wood has a vibrant and rich heritage which is celebrated by its residents. We chose green to symbolise the colour of Regent’s Park which was once part of the Great Forest of Middlesex together with the rest of St John’s Wood. White represents Lord’s Cricket Ground with the cricket ball placed in the middle of the central section.

Our design was inspired by the natural environment within our constituency. The colours of red, yellow and orange remind us of the beautiful sunsets we have here. The black tree symbolises the capon tree which is one of the last surviving oak trees of the ancient Jed Forest. The red and blue cloud behind the tree are the festival colours of Jedburgh. There were twenty-one children involved in the original design process and from that two children produced this design.
