A competition has been launched to find a flag for Northamptonshire.

The contest, launched by Nothamptonshire County Council is open to schools, community groups or individuals to design a flag which they believe best represents the county.

All entries will be assessed by a panel of judges, including a representative from The Flag Institute in London and a Professor in cultural studies, and a final five designs will be put to a public vote.

Chairman of the county council, Cllr Joan Kirkbride, said: “We are looking for a flag which can help raise recognition of Northamptonshire across the country, express pride in our local community and celebrate the heritage and culture of our corner of the country.”

People can find out full details of the competition by visiting www.northamptonshire.gov.uk with details of closing date and tips for flag designers.
