Description of the flag

The flag derives from the arms anachronistically attributed to the local Dark Age ruler, Edwin of Tegeingl, a former kingdom that covered much of the territory of Flintshire. The arms bore a black engrailed fleury cross, i.e. a cross with scalloped edges, on a white field between four choughs, a bird once likely to have been widespread in the vicinity, in black and red. These arms had been used by the former Flintshire county Council. The flag, designed by Jason Saber and refined by Philip Tibbetts, retains much of the basic symbolism and essential charges of the original arms but depicts them in a form more suitable for use as a flag.
