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 Howdenburn Primary School, Roxburghshire.
Region: Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk
Position: 75 (See Parliament Square map)

“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.”
