(0 votes)


The winner will receive a small version of their flag as well as the 2016/17 home shirt and two tickets to the first game the flag is surfed,

Tell you mates, tell your children, tell your teacher , tell your parents and get designing , we want a flag that you the supporters will be proud of and one that wille surfed for years to come.

The current crowd surfing flag is now past its best, it is ripped in several places, the colours have faded  and it smells despite being professionally cleaned so we at Wednesdayite think it is now time for us to have a new flag. And we are wanting YOU to design it, as a fan on behalf of all SWFC fans

Wednesdayite will pay for the production of it but then we will need a team of 5 or 6 dediciated volunteers to look after it home and away. IT IS IMPORTANT WE GET A TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS BEFORE THE FLAG IS MADE. If you can commit to being part of this team please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The volunteer team will hopefully take the flag to both home and away games( subject to getting permission) For away games they will be offered 50% of travel on Wednesdayite coaches.


Firstly the design

We are running a competition over the next few weeks for supporters to send in their designs, After selecting the top five we will then oput out a survey for fans to choose the best and to choose the size etc.

Be creative , we want something that stand out in the crowd, 

Do we go for a shirt design, a standard rectangle shape or square , the choice is yours.

Think about the words you want on it .

As they say you are staring with a blank canvas
