The finished flag 21-kent-lamberhurst-st-marys-ce-primary-school

“Years 3 & 4 were asked to design a flag to represent the local area. Both classes worked on different designs and we noticed that the designs were being inspired by topics that were being studied in class.

Within the two classes there were ideas about hops, lambs, apples, fruit trees, castles, coasts and cliffs and poppies. Everyone made their own designs and then from these designs and ideas, following a democratic vote, four flags from each class were made.

When the final flags were made we had a further vote and the hop design gained the most votes. This flag was inspired by a visit to our local hop farm in Lamberhurst where we saw the hops being gathered, processed and packed before being auctioned off and despatched to breweries for beer production.

Our design was prepared by two pupils and they decided to use the hop theme for the centre of their design. This was two tones of green placed on a blue background, which represents the autumn sky, and orange to each side for the lovely sunsets which we see in the countryside around Lamberhurst.”
