The first Nottinghamshire Day has been marked across the county.
A ceremony to raise the county flag has taken place at County Hall and the flag was also flown at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground to mark the occasion.
The aim of the event was to highlight the area’s heritage and boost tourism.
Nottinghamshire County Council said it’s hoped in future years bigger events will be held to promote the area, including displays and street parties.
County council chairman, Mike Quigley, said: “The inaugural Nottinghamshire Day provides uswith a fantastic opportunity to celebrate everything that is great about ourhistoric county, from our unique association with Robin Hood to our industrialheritage, from our sporting excellence to our wonderful tourist attractions.”
County council leader, Ben Bradley, said: “It is onlyright that we should be proud of our unique history and this is a date whichcan now be put in our diaries to celebrate in future years on a much broaderand grander scale.”
Nottinghamshire Day also marks the day in 1642when King Charles I raised his standard on what is now Standard Hill inNottingham at the start of the English Civil War.
Borough and district councils are also flying the county flag at premises andbuildings and the government is flying it outsidethe Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government and at Parliament.
Members of the public are encouraged to share videos and images about what they loveabout Nottinghamshire by using the #NottsDay hashtag.
