THE YORKSHIRE NORTH RIDING FLAG . . (Subject of much confusion!)
The flag was registered by the Flag Institute on 4 May 2013 as the winning entry in a competition organised in conjunction with it. The yellow edged blue cross recalls the colours (yellow stars on a blue background) of the arms attributed to the local saint, Wilfrid a major figure in the early history of the region. Set against a green field, the three colours in combination allude to the North Riding’s natural features the green representing the large tracts of the famed North Yorks Moors National Park, while the blue and yellow reflect the North Sea coastline (with its sandy beaches at Saltburn, Runswick Bay and Redcar Beach for example) and such rivers as the Swale, Tees and Esk.

Gill has now had a design drawn up incorporating our very own cockerel.
This can be converted into a flag for around £12 each, would you be interested? or would you prefer to stick to the old north riding (white background with red cross and 3 Yorkshire roses, or even the red pennant style with the above emblem and the green BCC caravan on.)
We need to make a decision and all try to stick to one flag. Please forward your thoughts to Gill Squires.
The North Yorkshire section covers -
