Flag Proposal

The flag derives from the arms of the former Cumberland County Council. The design represents some of the county's natural features; at the top are the white Parnassus flowers which grow on the marshy uplands, the green upper field, while at the base the wavy blue and white stripes symbolise the county's rivers, lakes and seaboard. The illustration is by Philip Tibbetts. See also http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cumberland-Flag/451826751524882

A letter from the Historic Counties Trust requesting the registration of this design as the county flag of Cumberland has been sent to the Flag Institute. The request has been made on the basis of a sizable number of expressions of support from local organisations see http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cumberland-Flag/451826751524882. We therefore anticipate the imminent registration of the attached design as the flag of the county of Cumberland next week. Ill alert you as soon as I hear any news.
