Flags are flying across Lincolnshire today to celebrate the county's big day. Lincolnshire Day has been celebrated since 2006 and aims to encourage people to celebrate the food, culture, heritage and traditions of the county.
It marks the anniversary of the Lincolnshire Rising in 1536, which was a Catholic revolt against the establishment of the Church of England by Henry VIII. People have been wearing yellow and flags have been raised at the Bishop's Palace and the Guildhall.
