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 Llanfoist Fawr Primary School, Monmouthshire.

“The inspiration for the design came from an original idea of using old and new bridges linking with Monmouthshire. Our initial design focused on the gateway to Monmouthshire (The Severn Bridge) intertwined with the Monnow Bridge. This design proved too complex to make so we decided on the iconic Monnow Bridge in colours representing both Wales and Monmouthshire.”
