Sunderland AFC picture gallery special: See the stunning new flag display unveiled at Stadium of Light

Sunderland fans unveiled their stunning new pre-match flag display at the Stadium of Light - and you can see them in all their glory in our picture gallery special.

Paying tribute to famous successes, legendary players and kits of years gone by, as well as the city's industrial heritage, the display helped create a breathtaking atmosphere before the clash with Coventry City. The display was organised by the Red and White Army supporters' group, who raised a remarkable £10,000 from the Sunderland fanbase.
