As part of our work with the UK Parliament to create the fantastic Parliament Square display for the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, we are showcasing each of the flags created by school children from throughout the country. This flag design comes from Dirleton Primary School, East Lothian.

“In the background of my flag I chose 3 colours, the blue and the yellow represent the sea and the sand of East Lothian’s long coast line. I chose the green to represent the large fields and farmland and the green golf courses as this area is also called The Golf Coast. The emblem in the centre is a black triangle that represents the North Berwick Law which is a well-known extinct volcano in East Lothian. The yellow sun in the centre of the emblem is important as East Lothian is the sunniest and driest area of Scotland.”
