The Glasgow community of Maryhill is set to get its own flag this October, for the first time in the area’s two-hundred-year history.
It follows a unique, year-long competition involving hundreds of individuals, local schools and community groups who were all given the chance to submit a proposed design thanks to a £2,000 community regeneration fund.
The ‘A Flag for Maryhill’ project is designed to allow a community of around 75,000 people the chance to reflect on a shared history and look with pride to the future.
Join us for a day of fun and help us launch the official #AFlagForMaryhill!
– Live music and entertainment in Maryhill Burgh Halls
– Gairbraid Ave will be home to some special vintage vehicles thanks to Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust. Get on board and transport yourself back in time.
– Navvies Barge is docking up at Maryhill Locks so you can climb aboard and see what life is like living on the canal. (Or pop into the oldest building in Maryhill, The White House for a cuppa or bite to eat!)
Not to mention performers , balloons , face painting , bouncy castles , candy floss , goodie bags and maybe even some special guests!
– The launch of Maryhill’s very own flag was voted for by YOU!
The event is free to all thanks to the support of Maryhill Housing Association.
