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 The Armstrong Primary School, Armagh.
Region: Newry and Armagh
Position: 61 (See Parliament Square map)

“Our flag was designed to include everyone from our community. We have the red, white and blue to symbolise the UK. We have a cross in the middle because Armagh has two Cathedrals, a Protestant and a Catholic Cathedral and has a rich history of eclesiastical study dating back to St. Patrick himself.
It is coloured in green and orange to further symbolise the two main communities. Finally, there is an apple because Armagh is known as the Orchard county and this industry is important to so many people from both sides of the community in the area.”
