Proposed flags – novel designs

The flags in this group are novel creations, in many cases they feature symbols or themes already found in the county, e.g. the Stafford Knot, but the flag as a whole is a modern contrivance – no such pattern has previously existed in this form and the proposal cannot therefore be registered as a “traditional” design, albeit that a charge appearing on the flag may be traditionally used in a given location. Such designs would be prime contenders for any competition established to determine a county flag. The list here features some of the more prominent examples of proposed county flags that have featured in discussions by enthusiasts.
