A Flag For Helmdon
A Community Competition
Helmdon Parish Council is pleased to announce an open competition to design a flag for Helmdon and you are invited to take part!
The flag for Pewsey in Wiltshire. A
good example of a village flag.
The competition opened on 1 December 2017 and entries must be submitted by
5:00 p.m. on Wednesday 17 January 2018.
An assessment panel, including representatives from Helmdon Parish Council and the Communities Vexallologist from The Flag Institute will then choose a final set of designs to be put to a public vote. The public vote will be held online and via e-mail beginning in February 2018 and the result will be announced at the Annual Parish Meeting on 25 April 2018.
The winning design will be registered in the Flag Institute’s UK Flag Registry and will then be used to represent the village of Helmdon.
A flag for Helmdon will be a free, public symbol for all to use that will:
Raise recognition and awareness of the village
Express the pride in our local community
Celebrate the heritage and culture of our part of Northamptonshire
Individuals and groups are invited to create proposals in line with the competition terms and conditions (below) and bearing in mind the Flag Institute design guidelines. However, if you are not an expert graphic artist, don't worry! You can still submit your design concept and if it is chosen for shortlisting the design can be worked up by a professional. Your ideas are as important as your design skills.
