Historic Counties Flag Day..

Historic Counties Flag Day..

Posted: Fri, 23 Jul 2021 10:05 by Cheryl Small

We are proud to be flying the new Leicestershire County Flag at the Memorial Green today in honour of Historic Counties Flag Day

#CountyFlagsDay is Wednesday 23rd July 2014, when the people of Great Britain celebrate the nation's historic counties through the flying of Flags.

Historic County Flags Day gives the government the chance to raise the 52 flags of Great Britain as currently registered by the Flag Institute. The aim of the day is to have as many county flags flying across Great Britain as possible on one day as an annual celebration. More »

Why is this important?

The government attaches great importance to the history and traditions of this country. Our history helps to define who we are and where we come from, and we are stronger as a nation when we cherish and champion our local traditions.

Understanding the past and how we have developed helps us to face the future with confidence and as a shared experience.

The tapestry of England's historic counties is one of the bonds that draws our nation together. The promotion of the historic counties can bring real benefits:

  • The historic counties are an important element of English traditions which support the identity and cultures of many of our local communities, giving people a sense of belonging, pride and community spirit. They continue to play an important part in the country's sporting and cultural life as well as providing a reference point for local tourism and heritage. We should all seek to strengthen the role that they can play.
  • The celebration of the historic counties can equally deliver real benefits for communities in terms of economic development and tourism, providing an important opportunity to make our rich past contribute to a bright future. That is why the government has been active in promoting the historic counties of England, and we have already done a number of things to make it easier for partners to celebrate the historic counties.
