2016 Festive Flag Competition Winners Announced

20 October 2016


Forty local children have won the chance to have their festive drawings displayed on street flags throughout the Chatswood CBD as part of Willoughby Council’s annual Festive Flag Competition. 

The winning flags were chosen by judges, Willoughby Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney and Councillor Judith Rutherford, from 400 entries from local schools including Chatswood Public School, Castle Cove Public School, Artarmon Public School and Mowbray Public School, as well as individual entrants. 

“As always, it was such a pleasure to judge the Festive Flag competition this year. There were some great entries,” said Willoughby Mayor, Gail Giles-Gidney. 

“The designs reflect the diversity of culture, and the creativity of Willoughby’s next generation – with designs including everything from  traditional ‘wintery’ northern hemisphere imagery with snowmen and elves, to representations of multicultural families, and Australian wildlife,” Mayor Gail added. 

Each of the winners will receive a gift voucher and have their flag design flown in Chatswood Mall and down Victoria Avenue, Chatswood from 17 November for six weeks. A formal presentation of certificates will be made to the children at the Light Up event at The Concourse, 17 November – this event includes the lighting of the Chatswood Christmas Tree.
