West Riding Flag Competition – Media Partner Announced

I am pleased to announce that I have given exclusivity to the Dalesman magazine  for the West Riding flag competition. They will announce:

  • The six finalists
  • The winning design.


The Dalesman is the foremost Yorkshire magazine with an extensive knowledge of Yorkshire’s true boundaries and cultural heritage boasting a readership of over 30,000 per month. I am delighted to be closely associated with the magazine and I believe them to be a fitting media partner for the West Riding flag competition.
