Recommended Posts

Herefordshire's new official flag to be revealed early November.

The competition deadline has now passed and the voting for Herefordshire’s new official flag will take place in September and the winning design will be revealed on November 2, the Herefordshire Flag Committee announced today.

The shortlisted entries will be named when the schools go back after the August bank holiday and the county’s residents will then have about a month to make their choice. Everyone aged five and over will be eligible to vote.

Herefordshire is one of only three of England’s 39 historic counties not to have its own registered flag, alongside Leicestershire and Hampshire.

This unadopted design below, which you might recognise, features a red background that represents the county's red earth, and a white and blue wave standing in for the River Wye. The gold lion is taken from the City of Hereford arms, and the bull's head is a bovine nod to Hereford Cattle.

Dear me, these range from mediocre to appalling. I've voted for the least worst but it doesn't fill me with any burning pride for the County. The 'unofficial' flag is better than any of these - what was wrong with that?
