Flag Competition

We are looking for YKC members to make amazing flags – your flag should fit on one sheet of landscape A4 paper. 

You can pick any theme you want, but it must feature something dog related somewhere on the flag. The flag should also mean something to you. Can incorporate your family and friends too.

For our example, we have:

  • A rainbow on the left-hand side to say thank you to our NHS
  • A dog at the bottom with a ball
  • The YKC logo on the right

Example

Judging Criteria 

The judges will be looking for the following:

  • A4 landscape size paper
  • Your flag must feature something to do with dogs
  • An eye-catching bold design
  • Creativity and fun
  • What connection you have to your flag

Prizes

The flag that wins the competition will be printed in the autumn edition of Fetch and will also win an Amazon eGift card worth £25.00, second place: £15.00 and third place: £10.00.

How to enter

The competition closes on 31st July 2020. You can submit your entry by taking a picture and emailing it to ykc@thekennelclub.org.uk. Please include the following information with your entry: name, address, age.

Flag Style 1: Good Old Standard Flag

The tried and tested flag most counties uses to house their design (Nepal is a notable exception - go take a look). You can't beat a classic flag - we'd love to see what spin you put on it.

Flag Style 2: The Pointy One

We like to think of this triangular flag relates to camping - we dont know why. Apparently this shaped flag is called a pennon (thanks wikipedia) and they get used for all sorts of things: from the corner flags in football to emblems for knights of the realm.

Flag Style 3: The Sideways Crown

This flag looks like a crown on its side, or maybe the end of a Christmas cracker. This one is actually called a Swallowtail flag with a tongue. These are very common in the Nordic countries (Sweden/Norway/Finland etc).
