Thread: More flags - Sutherland

  1. #1

    Default More flags - Sutherland

    After the launch of the Flag of Caithness last year, it seems that the neighbours are jealous (as well they might be). A competition is to be lunched for a county flag for Sutherland, according to the Northern Times.

    Good luck to them.

    I hope it doesn't portray an English Galleon like the Caithness flag. It should've been a longship.

    Any design will be better than the Caithness flag.

    Well, they've chosen a winner for our neighbour: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotlan...lands-43009286

    (The Flag Institute have picked up on it, and it looks better in the better resolution on their site: https://www.flaginstitute.org/wp/flags/sutherland/

    I see in the Scottie some very negative comments, but I have to say it looks stunning. It is very different from the run of most flags - striking and with local resonance.

    Now for Ross-shire...

    It's one that's been commandeered by Vikings.

    I think it's a heraldic device for a Scots Birlinn.

    Hopefully it won't look as crap as the Caithness flag.

    I doubt anything could look as bad as our dark dismal rag of a flag!
