The finished flag 61-armagh-armstrong-primary-school

“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.”
