The Flintshire flag is the flag of the county of Flint. It was registered with the Flag Institute on 24 February 2015.[1]

Design

The flag derives from the arms attributed to the local Dark Age ruler, Edwin of Tegeingl, a former kingdom that covered much of the territory of Flintshire. The arms bore a black engrailed cross, i.e. a cross with scalloped edges, on a white field between four choughs, a bird once likely to have been widespread in the vicinity, in black and red. These arms were also adapted by the former Flintshire County Council.
