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 Luston Primary School, Herefordshire.
Position: 19 (See Parliament Square map)

“Edited extracts from pupils’ written work during our flag making exercise:
“The North Herefordshire constituency in which Luston Primary is situated has many areas of excellence. We are fortunate to enjoy great benefits, one of them being our wonderful cattle, famous worldwide. They provide most wonderful milk and truly remarkable beef which, according to my Dad, goes down nicely with a pint of locally produced cider from our abundance of apple orchards.”
“Our history is incredible! Herefordshire is famous for beautiful black and white houses. We are extremely lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful scenery and animals, all of which is looked after by friendly Herefordshire folk. Many visitors to our delightful county decide to stay and make Herefordshire their home.”
Redwood Class (22 Y5 and Y6 pupils) met and interviewed the local MP, Bill Wiggins, who shared his thoughts about what made his constituency so special.
The pupils viewed images of the area and decided that the apple tree, the Hereford cattle, apples and the black and white houses represented north Herefordshire. Mary Freeman Head teacher Luston Primary School.”
