The Cumberland Flag was officially registered as the county’s flag on December 13th 2012, becoming the 26th British county flag. The design is a re-working of the banner of arms of the former Cumberland County Council, granted in 1950.
The pattern symbolises the coast line, and famous lakes with the blue and white wavy lines, whilst the green upper half with Grass-of-Parnassus flowers recalls the marshy up-lands and fertile plains of the county.
The design of waves and Parnassus flowers is also used by some local organisations to represent the traditional county and appears for example in the logos of, Cumberland Football Association and Cumberland County Cricket.
The registration of the flag of Cumberland reaffirms the continued existence of the centuries old county and its residents can now raise the county flag to demonstrate that the county is still there.
