WORCESTERSHIRE was proudly represented at Glastonbury.

Eagle-eyed viewers have spotted the county flag flying high during many of the iconic music festival's biggest performances.

While the Arctic Monkeys and Sir Elton John may have stolen the show at the Pyramid Stage, the sight of three black pears flying above the crowd will have caught the attention of many Worcestershire residents.

Worcestershire County Council shared a photo of the flag on social media, with many flocking to the comments to share where they had spotted it.

"I noticed this yesterday when I watched Rina Sawayama on BBC iPlayer," said Pollyann Poyner.

Charlotte Clucas added: "It’s there every year. We always spot them."

The county's flag was registered with the Flag Institute on April 8 2013 and was first flown in a ceremony at Worcester Cathedral on the same day. 

Designed by Elaine Truby, it was the winning entry in a BBC Hereford and Worcester competition, which had been launched earlier that year after it was found that the county did not have one of its own.

The black pears represent a symbol said to have been used by Worcestershire soldiers at the Battle of Agincourt, while the wavy green and blue background symbolises the river Severn running through the Worcestershire countryside, with the green also paying a nod to the county's cricket team.

The county was also well-represented on-stage, with Bewdley's Becky Hill treating the crowds to some of her chart-topping anthems on The Other Stage.

Hill fought back tears while she delivered a typically high-energy set.

The 29-year-old repeatedly told herself “don’t cry” before addressing the crowd of thousands after her performance of Last Time.

Donning an outfit scattered with yellow smiley faces, she thanked the Eavis family for having her at Worthy Farm, before later adding: “This is a truly life-changing moment for me. I get Glastonbury now and I’ll be back every single year as long as I can be.”
