Baner Sir y Fflint

Flintshire Flag

Having a recognised flag for the ancient county of Flint was a project with which I was keen to be part. Headed by Shaun Evans, a local historian, the project began in around 2014 with a view to having a flag recognised by the Flag Registry group. The flag was accepted in 2015 and stands with many other registered flags representing counties around the British isles.

Featuring the ancient arms of Edwin of Tegeingl, a prominent figure in the region’s history, the four Cornish choughs were a fitting symbol of the locality.

I was at first reserved about the idea of a flag for my home county as my heart has always been a fan of the anient, ceremonial county of Clwyd – for me, shires were an English invention intent on ensuring their power was realised by all of Wales. Perhaps reshaping and renaming lands was a method of consolidation of control and power but, at least our proud region now has a flag proudly flying. A symbol of a collective. A flag of which I, like many others, are proud.
