Huntingdonshire Day

Huntingdonshire Day is on the 25th April which is also the date of Oliver Cromwell's birthday. Oliver Cromwell was born on the 25th April 1599, this date was chosen by Huntingdonshire Society in tandem with the registration of the county flag.

The county flag of Huntingdonshire was officially registered by the Flag Institute in June 2009. The design of the flag was based on the flag held by the lion in the crest of the County's coat of arms. The Huntingdonshire flag features a hunting horn which is a symbol of the the Town of Huntingdon with a green background. The hunting horn is also featured on the seal of Huntingdon.
