Petersfield is holding a town flag competition at
Chrystian Kretowicz, 12 October 2008
Tony New, a retired architect, has won the award for his design of the new
Petersfield flag. Entries were put to a vote by residents of the Town, and three
designs went forward to a judging panel, led by former Mayor Paul Molloy who
dreamed up the idea. The design of 84-year-old Mr New, who lives in Woodbury
Avenue, won nearly a third of the popular vote. Paul Molloy said: "This is
something to be very proud of, and we will continue to be proud of it forever.
It has been created, designed, and selected by the people of Petersfield, which
is even more important. Congratulations to everyone who entered, and thank you
to everyone who voted."
Gareth Gammon, one of the judges and MD of Life Magazines, added: "Congratulations to Tony New on a quality design which will represent Petersfield for many years to come." The judges agreed that the flag represented everything about Petersfield: the Downs, the fields and the keys of St Peter.
