The streets and buildings of Dartmouth, UK, Dartmouth, US, will be dressed with thousands of pennant flags, all handmade by the local community and from all over the world.
The pennants are part of a unique stitchery project and will be hung around Dartmouth in August in the build-up to the anniversary of the sailing during the Mayflower 400 commemorations in September 2020.
The ship famously made its last stop after Dartmouth in Plymouth on September 16, 1620.
The idea was the brainchild of Rose Williams and Valerie Bird, who lead an enthusiast team of around 200 with a core of 10 volunteers at the heart of the operation. The whole team includes makers, hangers and a pinning team who are battling with around 2,250 metres of hanging tape and 50,000 metres of thread.
If you would like to make a pennant, donate fabric or contribute to essential funds, please get in touch with Rose via the email firstname.lastname@example.org
