“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.

The black and white stripes symbolise the Abbey Road crossing and also can be viewed as the keys of a piano. This reminds us of some of the most influential and loved residents such as Sir Paul McCartney, who has been residing here since the 1960’s. 38 Arnold House School boys from Year 3 have been involved in the designing of this flag.”
