Shetland Flag Day photo competition

by Misa Hay -

As part of the Shetland Flag Day celebrations on 21 June, Shetland Islands Council is inviting folk to submit their favourite photos that incorporate the Shetland flag.

Entries can be submitted now and will run for a month (to 21 July). The best entries will be published on the website during this period.

SIC Convener Malcolm Bell says: “The Shetland Flag is now an established and recognised symbol of Shetland's identity. Many of us proudly wear it every day and my badge is often commented upon when I attend events away from Shetland. I encourage everyone with Shetland at heart to support the Flag Day events and the photographic competition in particular”.
