riverfest flag artworkUPDATED WITH LIST OF LANDMARKS You may have seen our social media posts showing the specially commissioned Riverfest flag which is flying in Riverside Park over the weekend, but can you find all the Southampton landmarks it depicts?


Illustrator Christopher Todd, who created it, said he'd been asked "for a flag to represent the river, and the communities alongside it, and particularly the bridges, and everything that happens along the river".

The flag matches the other graphics for Riverfest, and was hoisted up the Riverside flagpole on Friday afternoon.

We'll try and ask Christopher for a list of the landmarks so you can see how well you do!

UPDATE: Christopher has now written a post all about the flag listing the landmarks: take a look here
