Shutford is a village and parish council in Oxfordshire, England.
Here is the page showing the winning entry and other proposals for the village flag http://www.shutfordvillage.com/shutford-flag.html
The name Shutford is derived from Scytta's Ford. This translated as Archers ford. My offering is based on the flag that was the coat of arms of the former Oxfordshire County Council.
The basic field colour is the Oxford blue long associated with Oxford and Oxfordshire. Against this two broad, white, wavy stripes symbolise the Sor Brooke which I presume was the water where the ford was. At the lower left and upper right corners, a golden oak tree, wheatsheaf and Shuttle to represent the Shutfords woodland, agriculture and its history of Plush production.
Centre is the Archer about to cross his ford.
