Cumberland Flies A New Flag: Press Release

Today the Association of British Counties issued a new press release Cumberland Flies A New Flag in light of the flag’s recent registration with the Flag Institute.

The County Flag movement is a strong part of the Association’s activities, with a goal to establishing a recognised flag for each of the Historic Counties.

Current and forthcoming competitions include flags for Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Worcestershire. Further details can be found on the ABC Flag Blog and in the recent article: Flying the flag: the county flag movement gains pace.
