A west Norfolk parish council formally commissioned its new flagpole for the village and in honour of its former chairman.
Wiggenhall St Germans Parish Council presented its new village flagpole at the Memorial Hall on School Road.
The ceremony also marked an official farewell to it former chairman Alastair Done, who served the community for seven years.
Mr Done proposed the flagpole last year to create a place to "celebrate and commemorate" national and local events and to offer more of focal point for the village.
He said the Wiggstock festival and flagpole were among the highlights of his time and that he would miss the council and the village.
