The European Flag of Honour awarded to
   Verwood & 3 Legged X Twinning Association  
on the 1st  June 2007.

On the 50th anniversary of the European flag, the "Verwood & Three Legged Cross Twinning Association", was one of only 24, and the only UK municipality in Europe to be awarded the "European Flag of Honour" this year. Rushmoor in Hampshire was the only UK town to be awarded the "European Diploma" which Verwood and 3LX was awarded in 2005. Nuremberg won the overall 2007 "Europe Prize".

European Diploma awarded to the
   Verwood & 3 Legged X Twinning Association  
on the 22nd June 2005.


The European Diploma is awarded by the Council of Europe for "promoting friendship between people in Europe". The application from the Twinning Association was made to Strasbourg in June 2004 by Catherina Green and Verwood's mayor. Each year 30 Diplomas are awarded and the European Diploma is the first award a town can achieve. 

The Committee is very proud of the fact that the work Verwood has done in promoting the friendship between people in Europe has been recognised. This was a great honour as hardly any other towns in the UK had been given this honour. 

Unfortunately neither the Mayor nor any Verwood town councillor felt able to attend and so a small group of Twinning Committee members went to Strasbourg (see photo courtesy of H Green). The presentation was on the 22nd June 2005, at the "Palais de l'Europe", along with representatives of twinning towns from Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Montenegro, UK and the Ukraine. The official handing over of the European Diploma took place in the Verwood Council Offices, to the Mayor, on the 24th of June 2005.

The next goal for the "Verwood & 3 Legged X Twinning Association" is the European Flag of Honour.
