The armorial banner of the early arms of the Clan Campbell


is a suitable basis for any flag of the county.

A family with mediaeval roots in the locality who provided first the Earls and then the Dukes of Argyll. The simple design is a gyronny of eight, gold and black; that is, the field is divided into eight equal alternately black and yellow sections. These early arms were later incorporated into the arms borne by the Duke of Argyll

Duke of Argyll

and then again into the arms borne by the Argyll County Council


, the design therefore has a long established local association.

This design may prove useful inspiration for a flag of the county of Argyll.
