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 Wheatfields Primary School, Huntingdonshire.

Huntingdon Constituency Designers – Wheatfields Primary School, St Ives, Cambridgeshire Our flag has been designed by children across both key stages. We pooled our individual designs and chose the most important features of our area to be represented on our flag.
From the top down:
- Light blue – we live on the edge of the Fens, no hills but lots of ‘Big Sky’
- Black – to represent the rich fen soil, some of the best in the world. The swifts represent the nature reserves that have been developed in the many old gravel pits.
- Darker blue – The River Great Ouse flows through the constituency.
- Yellow and green – the fields around our towns and villages grow a variety of crops including wheat, sugar beet and oil seed rape.
- White – our constituency is linked to our county town, Cambridge, by the Guided Busway which is made from white concrete.
