An open competition to design a new and distinctive civic flag for East Lothian is being formally launched on 28 November. This initiative is being jointly promoted by East Lothian Council and the Scottish Flag Trust, in association with the Lord Lyon.
Anyone is free to enter, and the competition is likely to attract a great deal of interest from across the county and from further afield. The closing date for entries is 28 February 2018, so there is plenty of time for individuals and groups with artistic or creative skills to work up their submissions.
Guidelines and entry forms for the competition are available online at www.eastlothian.gov.uk with hard copies available at council offices and libraries.
