Nottingham’s 60-foot St George’s flag was unfurled on the Council House this morning.

The 60ft by 26ft (18m by 8m) flag is believed to be the largest of its kind in the country and covers most of the building’s frontage.

It was installed by long-established Nottingham printers John E Wright.

Nottingham St George’s Day Parade – Nottingham comes together and celebrate the patron saint of England.

Led by the man himself, the traditional Royal Society of St George parade will make its way from Thurland Street to Old Market Square, finishing in front of England’s largest St George’s flag.

The annual St George’s Day parade is one of the most colourful and vibrant events in the city. The parade will  make a return this year after the necessary cancellations due to the pandemic.

The Radford branch of the Royal Society of St. George will parade from 12pm and will congregate on Thurland street from 10am.

 

The flag will be in place ready for Nottingham’s annual St George’s Parade, which is scheduled to arrive in the Old Market Square shortly after midday on Saturday 23rd April.

 

City Council Leader, Cllr David Mellen, said: “We are proud to display what is believed to be the largest St George’s flag in the country every year to mark St George’s Day. It provides a great backdrop for those celebrating the patron saint of England in the Old Market Square and taking part in the annual parade.”
