Wiltshire's county flag is flying from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) building this week.

The council said the exercise was part of an initiative to emphasise the importance of each county in Britain.

The flag, adopted in 2009, features a golden Great Bustard on a green and white striped background.

The bird was hunted to extinction in the UK until its reintroduction to Salisbury Plain in 2004.

The flag will be flown from the headquarters of the DCLG in London from 6 to 13 June.
