Flags for green Great Britain

The fitness level of ‘Team Hampshire Flag’ might need fine tuning but our flags did us proud in London 2012 by taking centre stage in the Great British Garden on the Olympic Park.

Eight feather flags featuring inspirational and informative messages including ‘Get set – Inspiring schools through the London 2012 Games’ helped showcase the Great British Garden – three themed gardens that reflect the colours of the Olympic medals; Bronze, Silver and Gold.

The Great British Garden was the result of a design competition by the Royal Horticultural Society and London 2012, which gave two winners the opportunity to help design a garden for the Olympic Park.

It’s great to think visitors from all over the world would have seen our feather flags this summer and that we played a small but visible part in this incredible sporting legacy.
