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.


Select a county on the clickable map, hosted on the Wikishire site, to find out about your county’s flag or proposed design, you will be taken to a county category page, with further links.

The flags are also grouped via the above English, Scottish and Welsh tabs or individually under the “Categories” listing at the right of this page.

There are also tabs for “Regional ” flags and other recognised designs.

The “Prospective Flags” section details proposed designs, both novel and traditional, for those as yet “unflagged” counties, regions, islands and county divisions.

If you are trying to identify a county or other local flag, you may like to consult the Flag Gallery.

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

Those with a greater interest, may like to visit our About page which includes extensive background details concerning the status of our counties and the development of local flags.

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.
