Description of the flag

BBC have now formally launched a competition for a flag for Sussex at http://www.bbc.co.uk/southerncounties/content/articles/2008/04/28/sussex_flag_intro_feature.shtml. The page shows a blue banner with 7 light blue wavy lines, and the crowned coat of arms in the centre in white. It also alludes to the design being made by Graham Bartram.

There is also a flag touted on the internet known as a 'West Sussex flag' which is a yellow over blue horizontal bicolour, not equally divided. The yellow band looks to be about 1/4 of the width of the flag. The bottom blue band features the five martlets in yellow and one local company is selling it in a five foot by three foot version - see my sources below for links.

The West Sussex flag features a mythical bird called Martlets which have been long associated with Sussex. The County Council offer this flag, which presumably is licensed to them.
