North Riding Day takes place annually on 22 August.

It marks the date of the battle of the Standard (1138), when English forces defeated the Scots near Northallerton.

The name of the battle derives from the consecrated banners of the minsters of Durham, York, Beverley and Ripon.

These flew from a mast mounted on a cart that marked the centre of the English position.
