701 Flags

To mark the 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath in 2020 Dundee Print Collective created a series of striking festival flag designs inspired by collaborative workshops with community and schools.

Now its 2021 we challenge you to join in and create 701 flags for Arbroath2020+1.

Your flag you design will be displayed as part of a large art trail in Arbroath Town Centre from July.
