Flying the flags in Flore

An exhibition of flags from across the Commonwealth has been unveiled in Flore, the only place in the country to fly them together.

Johnny Amos, parish councillor and president of the Commonwealth Flag Project, which he set up in Flore three years ago, formally opened the exhibition yesterday.

Councillor Amos, who wrote to every Prime Minister in the Commonwealth asking for their flag, said: "It's a great learning tool for people; children aren't taught about the world or the Commonwealth anymore."
