Jones Bros flies the flag at new HQ6th Feb 2014

Colourful flags and banners designed by schoolchildren for the National Eisteddfod have a new home as they take pride of place at Jones Bros new headquarters.

The flags were originally created by children from schools in Denbigh and Rhyl to ensure visitors to the festival received a warm welcome.

They were made thanks to sponsorship from Jones Bros and guidance from Denbigh artists Tara Dean and Coleg Menai art student Nia Lloyd-Roberts, who encouraged the children to reproduce images from their own environment.

The project was arranged thanks to support from Arts and Business Cymru, which looks to develop the mutually beneficial relationship between the arts and and Welsh businesses.
Inspired by the work of Ruthin painter and topographer Edward Pugh, the flags are now in situ at Jones Bros new premises in Ruthin town centre.

The 10,000 square feet building, built in 1993, has undergone a re-design and refurbishment programme and has been re-named Ty Glyn, in recognition of Jones Bros co-founder Glyn Jones.
