Vesting Day Flag Design

The Museum ran a Vesting Day Flag design competition for local schools. We were delighted to receive over 150 designs.

The Museum team shortlisted 12 flag designs and then the whole team voted for their favourite. The winning design was the celebratory flag designed by a pupil from Headfield School, Dewsbury who came to the Vesting Day with her school to help raise the flag in the pit yard and cut the ribbon to open the exhibition.

We hope the school are very proud of the design - we will proudly display it throughout 2017. 

The runners-up were also invited to attend the opening event and we made the 12 flag designs into montage flags.
