Pirate presents prizes to Flag Quest winners

The annual Southampton Flag Quest sponsored by the Southampton Business Improvement Association (BIA) is held each summer in conjunction with the annual Marine Heritage Society Festival.

While the 2021 Festival was cancelled due to COVID-19, the 7th annual Flag Quest went ahead as planned.

The Flag Quest is a family friendly scavenger hunt throughout Southampton where players  visit local participating businesses and decode Nautical flags to spell a word needed to complete the Game Card. Each completed Game Card can be entered for a chance to win one of four grand prizes made up of generous donations, including merchandise and gifts cards, from local businesses.

Friday the 13th is often considered unlucky but, for Flag Quest winners, it was anything but as two of the winners collected their ‘booty bags’ filled with exciting treasures from Captain Wayne Sparrow at the Marine Heritage Society’s weekly Market held at the Boathouse in Southampton.
