Councils across England have been flying the flag on town halls and civic offices for St George’s Day on 23 April.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, in person celebrations for England’s national day have had to be put on hold, but councils are still flying the St George’s Cross with pride and celebrating the country's patron saint, with some setting up virtual events.
Nottingham Council House is home to England’s largest St George’s Day flag, while Bradford Town Hall will be lit in red and white to mark the occasion.
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) tweeted: 'Today, in celebration of St George’s Day we are proudly flying the St George’s Cross at MHCLG HQ.’
In a recorded message, Prime Minister, Boris Johnson said: “A very happy St George’s Day, Shakespeare’s birthday, to everyone celebrating here in England and around the world.
“Because today is the day, when without embarrassment, without shame, we can raise a glass to everything that makes England such a great part of our United Kingdom.
“Happy St George’s Day.”
