The long awaited winner of the Cambridgeshire county flag competition was announced on Sunday February 1st.

The winning design was created by ABC member Brady Ells, who had previously enjoyed a similar success in neighbouring Northamptonshire and had secured registration of the traditional gold martlets on blue, as the county flag in his native Sussex. The three gold crowns represent East Anglia, in which Cambridgeshire is located. They are placed against a blue field which is the same shade used on the East Anglia flag. The wavy lines represent the River Cam and are in the colours of Cambridge University. For further background information on the design see the ABC County flags blog at
