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 Ysgol Gynradd Aberaeron, Cardiganshire.
Region: Ceredigion, Cardiganshire
Position: 80 (See Parliament Square map)

“My flag is designed to represent Ceredigion. It is divided into 3 vertical sections. The middle section has the Welsh dragon to represent Wales. Above the dragon is the sun to represent the warmth of the welcome in Ceredigion.
Silhouetted by the sun is the red kite. This bird symbolises the Welsh language. Ceredigion has been a stronghold and both the bird and the language are thriving in the county. The left section has a blue background to represent Cardigan Bay and the right section has a green background to represent the land and the farming tradition of our county.
Running diagonally across these sections are yellow and orange triangles to represent our beautiful beaches, and green and blue triangles to represent our mountains and clear blue skies. I hope you like my design. Daniel.”
