Flying the flag for Amble

Posted on 04th March 2022 | in Community

A competition has been launched to design a flag for Amble, which will be flown in the town square during the Queens’s Platinum Jubilee and Puffin Festival festivities.

Could you design a flag for Amble?

Andrew Gooding from Amble Development Trust said “There are a number of flagpoles in the Town Square and we have been gathering various flags to fly throughout the year to mark events. Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, with seventy years on the throne in 2022. We think it’s an occasion where flags should be flown. However, we don’t have a flag that celebrates Amble and we want to change that! That is why we are launching an Amble Flag Design Competition, open to everyone in Amble, to help us design a town flag.”

Individuals, schools, and community groups are invited to work up their proposals for a flag in line with the competition terms & conditions and design guidelines set out here. The deadline for submissions is 4 April 2022.

The winning flag will be flown in the amphitheatre in the Town Square

The flag will be flown on one of the masts in the amphitheatre in the Town Square during the Puffin Festival 4-5 June 2022.  The winning flag will be sent to Her Majesty The Queen, together with an official celebratory Platinum Jubilee message from Amble. The winner will receive a replica of their flag and £20 voucher to spend in an Amble store of your choice.

Winners will be notified on 11 April, and announced to the public via media release and social media on 15 April.
