County Divisions, Territories And Islands

England’s largest county, Yorkshire, has three internal divisions named Ridings,  along with the city of York. Each Riding is as large as many other counties and accordingly, each has its own flag and special day. Several islands, including Hampshire’s Isle of Wight, the Cornish Isles of Scilly and a number on Scotland’s west coast, also have distinct flags. Several proposals exist for other divisions and islands, so hopefully this page will soon be expanded to include further recognised flags at the “sub-county” level.
