The Yorkshire Ridings Society led their annual walk around York's walls with the county's flag today.
The Yorkshire Declaration of Integrity was read out at the four gates.
The time for the first reading, 11.39am, coincides with the number of years since the first written reference to the Ridings of York in the Anglo Saxon Chronicles.
The ceremonial party has now moved to St Helen’s Square for an afternoon of entertainment.
