Suffolk Day


A joint initiative of BBC Radio Suffolk and the East Anglian Daily Times, supported by Suffolk County Council, June 21st, the longest day of the year, was selected as the Suffolk county day to highlight the fact that the county is the most easterly


in the UK – with Ness Point, Lowestoft,


being the first place in the country to see sunrise. The day was chosen to celebrate the county’s character and many cultural assets, its food and drink, landscapes, wildlife, business, history and sports. The inaugural Suffolk Day was on June 21st 2017, an occasion marked with use of a special logo

which featured the county’s traditional crown and arrows emblem. The occasion saw the first raising of the county’s flag, the armorial banner of Saint Edmund, by the county council


The flag was subsequently much in evidence the following year, being raised in Felixstowe
