With so many events cancelled or restricted for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May, The BBC wanted to help people across Britain to mark the occasion and express their pride in our country and to remember and honour the men and women of WW2.
From Monday 27th April, every BBC Local Radio station will be asking people to get creative and make their own special ‘Great British Bunting’ to hang in their windows. Bunting can be decorated with pictures of soldiers who fought on the frontline or those who worked on the Homefront; it could be your grandad in the Navy or your great grandmother who worked for the RAF. Or you could draw a poppy to commemorate the fallen, a dove to celebrate lasting peace or a rainbow to symbolise hope.
Send them your pictures and tag your BBC Local Radio station in your social media as well as using the hashtags #GreatBritishBunting and #VEDay75 so that all the effort people put in can be shared far and wide.
