Nearly every festival hosts a littering of wavy structures, transforming what was once a field into a sea of coloured material depicting all sorts of imagery and colours. The festival flag can either help you find your base camp or show off your style whilst watching your favourite bands. Although this festival season might be over, you can save money next year by making your own now – because you know that in the run up to the event you won’t have the time!
You can pitch them up alongside your tents to make it that bit easier to find your way back, especially ideal for those hazy or drunken walks through endless tents. Alternatively, you can get down to the stage early doors and fly your beasty structure for all to admire – brilliant for helping friends to find you, or for people back home watching on television to recognise where you are.
Flags and banners have long been a traditional part of Reading Festival and in the early 70s flags were originally put up for motorbike groups and other factions to identify themselves within the area. Although the reasons may have slightly changed the festival flag is still flying high and producing amazing spectacles.
What You Need To Create
Whatever you go for – big, loud and proud or just a little flag full of significance, enjoy your time at the festival and let the high times fly!
