A flag designed by children from Abington Vale Primary School which represents the Northamptonshire community is flying at Westminster this week.

The unique event is the culmination of the 2015 Flag Project, managed by the House of Commons, which aims to connect young people with the democratic process and the UK’s parliamentary heritage.

Abington Vale Primary School’s flag is one of 80, made from designs prepared by primary school children from across the UK. The flags have been flying in Parliament Square since Monday, May 18, where they will remain until Friday, May 22.
