Flag firms offer their services
TWO Huntingdonshire flag manufacturers have offered to make the winning entry in The Hunts Post s competition for readers to design a new standard for the ancient county. The Huntingdonshire Society says recent legislation now makes it lawful to fly count
TWO Huntingdonshire flag manufacturers have offered to make the winning entry in The Hunts Post's competition for readers to design a new standard for the ancient county.
The Huntingdonshire Society says recent legislation now makes it lawful to fly county flags, and nearly two-thirds of readers in our on-line poll support the idea. However, half of those who responded did not care for the Huntingdonshire Society's green-and-gold design of horn and corn.
While readers are drawing up their own alternative designs, Kimbolton-based House of Flags and The Flag Workshop in Eynesbury have both offered to manufacture whatever design finds greatest favour with Hunts Post readers.
House of Flags has gone one step further - managing director Ian Simmonds is encouraging employees to submit their own designs for the competition.

The Flag Workshop's Nina Lambert offered advice to reader-designers on what does and does not work in flag design.
"If the design has shading or is very complex, the flag would have to be printed. This would probably be the case for the design from The Hunts Post (due to grey markings in the oval)," she said, referring to a contribution last week from our in-house designer.
