The Barra Bunting Project: Be a part of it

Barra Bunting Project

The aim of this project is to unite a worldwide community by bringing them together on one project that everyone can take-part in.

We would like people to make one bunting flag of their own design.  The only qualification needed for making a flag is that you must have set foot on Barra and/or Vatersay. 

All flags created will be sewn together and a large amount of bunting created that can be used at events throughout Barra and Vatersay. 

The Project will also create an archive of all the flags.  For this archive we would like to know a little about yourself and your flag.  We would like you to send the following information to accompany your flag:- Name, Year of birth, Where you live, Your relationship with Barra and/or Vatersay, What your flag represents and a picture of yourself.

This is not a one-off project.  It will go on year after year with new people creating flags and them being added to the original bunting.
