The Shropshire flag is the flag of the County of Salop. It was registered with the Flag Institute in March 2012.

History

The flag is a banner of the arms of the former Shropshire County Council which were awarded in 1895. The leopards' faces, fondly referred to as loggerheads locally, are a traditional emblem for Shropshire and have historically evolved from the lions' heads on the Shrewsbury town arms which themselves were first recorded in 1623.

Design

The pantone colours for the flag are:

  • Black
  • Blue 286
  • Yellow 108
