    Two variations on the land and sea, the farming and the fishing. IMO I dont agree with a black and red flag. Green is the colour I associate with Caithness.

    Has to be a flag with Nordic influences, as are the Orkney and Shetland flags. Nothing bizarre or too complicated please, or pictures thats just wrong. Keep it simple.
    Something with horizontal and vertical cross, same as Orkney and Shetland. Dont like greens Im afraid.

    I reckon the flag should have a green background with a big, brown steaming jobby in the centre to represent the mess on Caithness footpaths.
    A 1991 Gallup survey indicated that 49 percent of Americans didn't know that white bread is made from wheat.

    All good ideas - I've sent one off to the Groat - have you? Until they start piling them up, we've not got a good competition.

    My Son is up Visiting and this is his suggestion of a Caithness Flag, notice it is made from a Caithness Flag Stone.

    The flag competition is now up and running, with the Lord Lyon, no less, standing behind it. Let's make it a good one. (Report in the Groat: Caithness Flag Competition Under Way)

    it'll take more than a flag to 'raise recognition and awareness of the area nation-wide, express the pride in our local community and celebrate the heritage and culture of our corner of the country.

    distraction distraction distraction ... that's the art of modern politics and i'm dismayed to find it's seeped down to local level

    i would ask all councillors in Caithness to get on with the real job they were elected to represent us for and stop fannying about with some daft Blue Peter make a flag for Caithness competition.

    ( by the way Kodiak - i think your lad's design is the best i've seen )

    We're close to the deadline for flag competition entries. I've no doubt there are plenty of good entries in already, but you have only until Friday 29 May to get your entry in:
