Platinum Jubilee Flag Competition
Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years on the throne in 2022. To celebrate this historic occasion, the States of Guernsey are launching a competition for islanders to design a unique Guernsey Platinum Jubilee flag.
Flags are a powerful and evocative symbol of identity, whether national or territorial or corporate. They come in a multitude of colours and designs, often linked to the history of the country or territory, or to ideals and aspirations.
A distinctive Guernsey Platinum Jubilee flag would express pride in our local community; celebrate the 70 years of service of Her Majesty The Queen and signals the Bailiwick’s status as one of the crown’s oldest possessions.
The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture agreed the best way to develop a new Platinum Jubilee flag for Guernsey was through the community with the opportunity open to anyone who wishes to submit a design.
The Competition Dates:
Individuals, schools, and community groups are invited to work up their proposals for a flag in line with the competition terms & conditions and design guidelines set out below. The deadline for submissions is 11th March 2022.
