Flag Day

Flag Day information, events and news

Flag Day Events

The Foundation was delighted to have schools from throughout the State take part in Flag Day Activities for the last number of years and hold events in their schools so all students of the school could come together to learn the history of the flag and raise funds. Lapel pins supplied for free by the Foundation were sold for charities locally, nationally and internationally and for projects chosen by the pupils. Many of these pupils then entered the Foundations Awards and Scholarship Programme, more details are available here.  Some of the activities by schools and students and some of the projects monies were raised for are below.
