Get your bunting out

So what’s so special about blue, red and yellow bunting across the street in Kirkwall I hear you ask? Well, they are the colours of the Orkney flag.

“The colours red and yellow are from the Scottish and Norwegian royal coats of arms, which both use yellow and red, with a lion rampant. The flag symbolises the islands’ Scottish and Norwegian heritage. The blue is taken from the flag of Scotland and also represents the sea and the maritime heritage of the islands.”
