The proposed flag of the county (also known locally as Tweedale) take its inspiration from symbols used by the county town of Peebles in its arms


Created by Philip Tibbettts, the proposed flag combines the salmon found there with a vertical blue and white wavy pattern recalling the River Tweed that rises and begins its course in the county. Two of the fish point down and one up to recall the local saying that for every one salmon that swims upstream in the River Tweed two will flow down it!
