Ideas of how to get involved
The Northumberland Day Flag Challenge
Leading up to Northumberland Day, we would like to see ambitious and passionate Northumbrians taking up a Northumberland Flag Challenge. Get the Northumberland flag into unexpected places and photograph it there, whether it is on a beach in Australia, a sunbed in Magaluf, or on top of a mountain. Let’s get the flag pictured everywhere and talked about worldwide! If you’re struggling for a flag, we will lend you one, if you promise to pass it on to the next person to take up the challenge. Flags can be bought on Amazon, if you want your own!
Turn Northumberland Yellow and Red!
We want to see as many people as possible turning Northumberland yellow and red in celebration of Northumberland Day. Northumberland schools can do that before they break up for the Whitsun holidays and then everyone else can bedeck the county in its bold colours for the day itself – Sunday May 28. Dress your hair, your face, your shop windows, your cars, your bicycles, garden borders and much more in yellow and red and don’t forget to take those special coloured outfits out of the wardrobe on the day!
