Derbyshire Day

22 September 2015 all-day

Derbyshire Day takes place annually on 22 September.

BBC Radio Derby presenter Andy Whittaker organised a vote, and the chosen date commemorates the first raising of the flag.

Alternative suggestions included: 28 July – Derby, the county town, granted city status; 12 May – the birthday of Florence Nightingale, who spent her early years in the county.
