Today is the day that we celebrate everything that's wonderful on Wearside - and there's a lot to be proud of.
Ahead of today's National Mackem Day celebration, we asked you to share your favourite pictures of the city with us.
And you really made us smile!
From lovely pictures our bridges, to stunning shots of our coastline, Sunderland really is a city to celebrate.
Thanks to everyone who shared a photograph with us in the run up to today.
