A blue and yellow vertical bicolour with a centred shield, bearing a quartered shield with a blue dragon on white in the first and fourth quarters and a white boar on red in the second and third quarters. The name LONGFORD is arched above, and An Longfort 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. The device on the centre is the
unofficial arms used by the town of Longford until 1978 when they got a proper
grant of arms (I believe it is based on the arms of Lord Longford).
