"A flag featuring the coat of arms of the City of Stoke-on-Trent will fly for
the first time over the Civic Centre on Monday 26 March 2007. Lord Mayor
Councillor Jean Edwards will officially inaugurate the new flag which will then
fly every day. The Lord Mayor said: "I'm proud to fly the flag for the City.
Many people have suggested that we should have a flag on the Civic Centre and
now we have made it happen."
Deputy Elected Mayor Councillor Paul Shotton said: "I have wanted the council to fly a civic flag for some time and I'm delighted that it has happened."
The flag has a white background and features the coat-of-arms of the City and
the words "City of Stoke-on-Trent". It measures 10 foot by 5 foot."

Stoke-on-Trent is in the county of Staffordshire in the English Midlands,
about equidistant between Birmingham and Manchester. It has a population of
around 250,000 (greater urban area 450,000). It is noted for its ceramics, and
was a major centre during the industrial revolution of the early 19th century.
Pottery is still a major industry in the area.
