Flags of Bankside

Our neighbours Better Bankside, are flying 60 flags in Borough Market's Jubilee Place as part of London Design Festival. The flags, created by some of Bankside’s leading artists and designers, will celebrate the area's independent character.

Come down to Jubilee Place between 15 - 23 September and see if you can spot our specially designed flag amongst a selection of other creations!

Borough Market sits on the edge of Bankside, a district that has experienced constant reinvention over the years. For centuries it welcomed those with a rebellious and independent spirit. The area’s location outside the walls of the City made it a natural landing place for outsiders and free thinkers, as well as raucous traders peddlng their wares, and today it retains an ‘otherness’ that inspires creativity and curiosity. 

Don’t miss the opportunity to see the flags hung in Jubilee Place, before they are proudly flown throughout the area. And keep your eyes peeled for our homage to rebellion and indepedence!
