Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



Fluttering flags

There will be a forest of fluttering flags being put up from Monday, 28th March across main shopping centres of Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge to brighten up the streets in the ongoing effort to encourage more shoppers and visitors to support our towns. This project is part of the Welcome Back Fund.

The artwork for the Bridgwater flags has been designed by Hey Belles, a local graphic design company from Somerset based on historical images and events that represent Bridgwater’s heritage. Taken from a list suggested by Bridgwater Town Council, some of the images are of Robert Blake, Duke of Monmouth, John Chubb, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, John Bowen, Jon Toogood, Vernon Bartlett and Joe Strummer along with representation of local events and buildings.  

The artwork for Burnham on Sea and Highbridge has been designed by local residents taking part in two art projects run by SEED Sedgemoor. There is a mixture of landscapes, animals and plants and some abstract images.
