The flag of Lincolnshire was the winning entry in a 2005 competition organised by the BBC . The flag was designed by Michelle Andrews and selected from a shortlist of six designs drawn from competition entries. The flag features a red cross bearing a yellow fleur-de-lys as found in the arms of the city of Lincoln. The yellow edging symbolises the crops grown in the county, as well as the nickname “Yellerbellies” given to people born and bred in Lincolnshire. Blue represents both the sea of the East coast and the wide skies of Lincolnshire, and green symbolises the rich lushness of fenland fields
