Description of the flag

Divided barry in 8, green and yellow, wavy stripes; centred an ermine shield bearing a red cross bottony.

This flag is of the county council - the elected body responsible for local administration. It is flown at council offices but it does not represent the county and is not used by the general population.

County colours

[Donegal County Colours] image by Eugene Ipavec, 10 April 2009

A green and yellow vertically divided flag (the county colours) with a centred buff shield with an arm holding a red cross.  The name DONEGAL is arched above, and Dun na nGall below.

This "county flag" is used by supporters of Gaelic Athletics (Gaelic Football, Hurling etc.) teams. There are as many versions of these as there are manufacturers, and none of these have official status. What is consistent is the county colours.
