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 Webheath First School Academy, Worcestershire.

“This flag has been designed to represent the Worcestershire town of Redditch. The cloverleaf represents the iconic cloverleaf interchange. The river and arrow represents the River Arrow. The crossed needles represent Redditch’s links to the needle making industry. The Kingfisher bird represents the town’s primary retail centre, the ‘Kingfisher Shopping Centre’ which was opened in 1976 by the then Prime Minister James Callaghan.”
