Flying the Flag at Coast Festival
Organisers of Banff and Macduff's annual COAST event are planning a huge installation featuring more than 200 custom-made flags. The piece will take pride of place at Banff Castle. The theme of the festival is the creative individual, so the organisers are providing more than 200 blank flags that groups will be getting together to decorate. Locals are being challenged to design a flag that best represents them or their families. The flags will be fixed to a forest of bamboo canes. Meanwhile 20 giant flags are being decorated by the same team behind last year's colourful umbrella project. This year's event runs from 25th to 27th May, starting with an opening ceremony at Macduff Town Hall.
