Fife Council has officially awarded the Freedom of the City of Dunfermline to its peacocks.
Dunfermline won coveted city status as part of celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee last year.
The town used to be Scotland’s capital and became its eighth city – joining Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling and Perth.
Now the city’s peacocks have been given official recognition.
Fife Council’s Full Council meeting agreed the award on Thursday.
Provost Jim Leishman and City of Dunfermline area committee convener, councillor James Calder welcomed the move: “Dunfermline’s peacocks are very important to the city. By awarding them freedom of the city we’re recognising their valuable contribution and encouraging their presence in and around the city.
“We are planning a presentation ceremony to mark the award which is very well deserved.”
