As VE Day dawns on 8th May 2020, it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe.
Years of carnage and destruction had come to an end and millions of people took to the streets and pubs to celebrate peace, and, for many, mourn their loved ones.
This year the nation is recognising this important date with a bank holiday. A national series of events including street parties will celebrate this momentous day in history.
We are incredibly proud to be one of the sponsors of the official VE Day 75 organisation – www.veday75.org – with Bruno Peek LVO OBE OP Pageant master of VE Day 75 leading the national event. The organisation has been established with the aim to support local groups prepare and organise this day of national commemoration.
Many towns and villages are planning parties in village halls and venues, so we at YPP have developed a range of complementary flags, banners and bunting in conjunction with the organisation. All are proudly made in our state-of-the-art factory in Lincoln.
Our range includes a number of exclusive designs for flags, banners and bunting that include the official VE Day 75th Anniversary logo as well as a space for you to customise them with the names, dates and times of your very own street parties and events. To add in your custom event information, please fill out the notes section when you proceed to the checkout on our website, or alternatively email [email protected].
If you are looking for a bespoke design for your event or different sizes to suit your space then please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly customer service team who will be happy to help.
