Giant Prayer Flag Installation in the West Wight

Over the weekend, not only did we have the Olympic torch here in the West Wight , we also had a giant art installation of prayer flags in the shape of a huge Olympic flame on High Down.

It is a 60-metre flame-shaped symbol of hope and good will created by local artist Eva Wolfram with the help of hundreds of people of all ages who wrote their hopes, wishes, prayers and messages on each and every one of these flags over the past few months.

"The field is visible from the sea, the UK mainland, the road and car park at Alum Bay and the Lymington to Yarmouth car ferry. To greet the arrival of the Olympic Torch to the Island, we have installed it high up on West High Down close to the Needles New Battery. The field nestles into breath-taking scenery and landscape and can be visited for the coming two weeks while the Olympic Games are on."
