The King’s Coronation is heading our way and we are getting Coronation Big Lunch Street Party ready! And what better way to decorate than with some Union Jack Bunting? As always, we love to help you along the way, so after creating this bunting template for ourselves, I have loaded this free Union Jack Bunting Printable up for you to grab as well! Enjoy!
With the King Charles III Coronation on the 6th May, communities across the UK will be holding picnics, parties adn street parties or a street meet to celebrate. We last had a street party for The Queen’s Jubilee and the Meghan and Harry and the couple’s wedding.. and we are so ready for renewed celebrations!
When is the King’s Coronation?
The King’s Coronation will be on the 6th May 2023. It is part of a special Coronation Bank Holiday weekend. So people in Britain will also have a day off on Monday the 8th May.
Organising a street party is easy
Street parties are easy to organise, you simply have to get an application form from your local council website, make some necessary road closures (we simply asked our neighbours to move their cars and put big black bins or if you have them traffic cones as “blockades” at the end of the street). We did have to ask for a small fee from neighbours too, to pay for some insurance, but it really wasn’t very much! All residents are invited to join in! May th and May 7th are popular street party dates as they fall in the middle of the bank holiday weekend – making it a better time to celebrate, as you have plenty of time to set up, but also tidy up!

As mentioned previously, I decided to go for a “mid size” bunting template – so you can print two Union Jack flags per page. This is allows for your paper and printer ink to “go further” and the size is a good size for decorating your home, as well as the street. I would use this royal flag bunting the following ways:
- On a mantle piece of above a fire place
- To decorate a front door or porch
- To decorate a garden gate at a street party
- To decorate a front garden wall for a street party
- This would also make great Union Jack Bunting for the classroom!
How to make a Union Jack Bunting with this free template
Making these Union Jack Flag garlands really is very easy!
Grab your supplies.
Print out either the full colour flags or the colour your own union jack printables. As many as you need. I think between 8 – 10 flags is nice for a porch or mantel piece. So you will need 4-5 sheets of A4 paper.
Cut out your flags (keep the “fold over string” attached – don’t cut that off).
Fold around your string or ribbon.
Staple or glue in place.
DONE! EASY PEASY!
Now you are all ready to celebrate the King’s Coronation with us! Her majesty will be proud 🙂
Hope you have a fantastic Coronation Big Lunch – with plenty of sausage rolls, some yummy and fruity victoria sponges and of course some scones. I can’t wait! Hooray.
