Design

The flag derives from the arms of the former Cumberland County Council. The design represents some of the county's natural features; at the top are the white Parnassus flowers which grow on the marshy uplands, the green upper field, while at the base the wavy blue and white stripes symbolise the county's rivers, lakes and seaboard. The illustration is by Philip Tibbetts.
