The hamlet of Chavey Down is part of the Winkfield Parish Council, within the
Bracknell Forest Borough Council.
Chavey Down has its own village flag which is flown from the flagpole at St Martin’s Church in Church Road on special occasions such as 80th, 90th and 100th birthdays, and is flown at half-mast for funerals.
The flagpole was erected to commemorate The Queen’s Golden Jubilee, with the flag being designed by Neil Grimshaw. The triangles depict the shape of the area of Chavey Down which was then part of Windsor Forest, the trees show that it formed common land and was enclosed by George III and the windmill denotes the fact that an ancient windmill was sited in the area of the village in the grounds of Chavey Down Farm (or Chavey Down Lodge as it was previously known). The colours of the flag are purple and gold to show the royal connection and green to represent Windsor Forest.
