A number of flags have been photographed flying around in Fenland towns and villages as England fans show their support during Euro 2020. 

Cheryl Wright from Whittlesey took to her camera when out on her travels, getting snaps of a variety of England flags in all shapes and sizes.

“It’s lovely to see so many flags, 

“I know many are up because of the football, but win, lose, or draw, what’s not to love about a bit of national pride,” Cheryl said.

Cheryl hopes that once the competition is over, people will consider flying a ‘Fenland flag’, a proposed flag for the local area. 

If people are interested in swapping their flags over once Euro 2020 is finished, Cheryl asks people to message the Facebook page to request a free sticker, or talk to James Bowman, the flag designer.
