So what is Yorkshire Day?
It is the 1st August every year and a celebration of all things Yorkshire.
Every year on the 1st August Yorkshire Day is celebrated and promotes everything that is Yorkshire with the official Yorkshire flag being first unfurled in Hull in 2008. Since then the white rose of Yorkshire on the flag will be seen flying all around Yorkshire on 1st August.
