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 Jonathan Parsons, lead artist on the Magna Carta flag project.
Jonathan Parsons is the artistic lead for the UK Parliament’s 2015 Flag Project, commemorating 750 years since De Montfort parliament.
A selection of 80 ceremonial sewn flags were displayed in Parliament Square from 18 – 22 May 2015.
The flags will be shown again in the presence of the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke of Cambridge at a major international event commemorating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta at Runnymede Meadows in Surrey on 15 June 2015.
