Philip Tibbetts, Community Vexillologist for The Flag Institute commented: “The range and quality of entries was very impressive and clearly reflects the beauty of Exmoor itself and the passion of its people. This beauty and passion manifested in many different ways: from the 200+ entries to the incredible flag flying display put on by the businesses of Dulverton in honour of the judging. It is these characteristics of Exmoor that have ensured a fantastic set of finalists and will further guarantee a beautiful winning flag for the area."
Voting closes on Wednesday 10th of September. The winning Exmoor Flag will be registered by The Flag Institute the organisation that registers United Kingdom flags, and announced in an unveiling ceremony on the 29th October where the Exmoor Flag Project Team has a wonderful day planned to celebrate Exmoor’s new flag.
The owner of the winning Exmoor Flag will not only have the honour of their design being registered as an official United Kingdom flag, but will receive the very first copy of the flag, professionally hand made on Exmoor. In addition the winner will be presented with the most amazing prize of a hamper overflowing with Exmoor produce and products, tickets for visitor attractions and vouchers for meals at popular venues. All these gifts have been generously donated by local businesses to support and celebrate this new era for Exmoor.
The Exmoor Flag Competition is financially supported by the Exmoor National Park Partnership Fund and the Exmoor Flag Project team.
