Villagers in Cromford hung out the flags to mark the launch of a festival featuring music, song and artwork.
A packed programme of events provided a weekend of free entertainment in the village, aimed at celebrating Cromford’s people and heritage.
Concerts by Dale Diva and The Dooberies, brass band music, open gardens, competitions and exhibitions kept all ages entertained.
Villager Clem Wilson’s specially designed flags depicting Cromford’s waterwheel landmark were hoisted along Scarthin.
The retired fitter, of Coton Cottage, created the design four years ago and 15 flags bearing his artwork fluttered during the festival.
He said: “I love them, they add a bit of colour. I think every town and village should have flags with their own motifs on them.”
Clem, 73 was encouraged to design a flag by his son Carl, 46, who flew from his home in Perth, Australia, to join in the Celebrating Cromford revelry.
