Ukrainian flags now fly along the length of a York street visited by people from across Europe and the world.
Traders on Shambles have put up the flags to show ‘solidarity and support’ for Ukraine, after being horrified by Russia’s invasion and attack on the country.
Large flags are flying at both ends and in the middle of the cobbled street. Smaller flags are strung between the medieval buildings.
Adam Scott, of the Shambles Sweet Shop, has created a special display of blue and yellow sweets – the Ukrainian flag colours – in his window.
And the gargoyle above York Potions Cauldron now has the country’s flag wrapped around him.
Mike Gaskell, chair of Shambles Traders, told YorkMix: “We’re just recognising the awful situation over in Ukraine.
“The traders and people of the Shambles just want to pull together to show the solidarity and the support we have for these poor people out in Ukraine.
“For one of the oldest streets in Europe, we thought that if we could show our our solidarity and support, hopefully others would do the same.”
