Flag Festival

Ilminster Flag Festival

28th April to 23rd June 2024

The Flag Festival forms a major part of the Ilminster Midsummer Experience. More than 100 flags in the Ilminster Flag Festival include the stunning banners designed by Patrick Reyntiens and John Reyntiens in the Minster Church

Make a date now to come down to see the Ilminster Flag Festival and enjoy a cup of tea and cake or a delicious lunch in one of the many coffee shops or pubs in town

We are fortunate that the town’s medieval road layout, which hugs closely to the 15th century Minster church, dramatically emphasises the effect of the flags and brings vibrancy and colour to the town

The Flag Festival grew out of an idea from one of the town’s artists.  We were able to commission a flag-maker to work with children from Greenfylde School to design the original 20 flags.

These were so successful that the following year we invited businesses to contribute to their own flag and the majority of businesses in town now have a flag – some even have two!
