Welcome To British County Flags

BCF Header.png

This site celebrates the county flags of Great Britain; our aim is to provide some explanation and reference for the flags of British shires and to clarify areas of confusion or misunderstanding.

For those with a greater interest, our About page includes extensive background details concerning the status of our counties, the development of local flags and the creation of the registry which records them, the basis of this site and frequently referred to in the individual accounts of county flags. These are grouped into English, Scottish and Welsh sections, which may also be reached by the tabs above or individually under the “Categories” listing at the right of this page.

There is also a “Regional and Islands” tab for those registered flags. The “Prospective Flags” section details proposed designs, both novel and traditional, for those as yet “unflagged” counties, regions, islands and county divisions.

Links to related web pages can also be found at right, under “Blogroll”.

Thank you for your interest, we hope you find the site both informative and enjoyable. If you have any comments or queries, please visit our Twitter and Facebook pages, again, also at right.
