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 Quinta Primary School, Cheshire.
Region: Congleton, Cheshire
Position: 47 (See Parliament Square map)

“The inspiration for our emblem of the paw print came from the legend that Congleton sold its bible to buy a new bear hence its nickname Beartown. The central hearts represent the little town with a big heart.
We chose black and white to link with our historical Tudor past and Little Moreton Hall. The wheat sheaf is the emblem of Cheshire of which we are in the county of. The green hill is The Cloud at Bosley which is a famous landmark which is apparent from many viewpoints in town.”
