Description and history of the flag

Above the flag of Hampshire County Council, which was adopted on 13th July 1992 when the county was granted a coat of arms to mark the centenary of the county council in 1989 (only two years late!). The flag is a banner of the arms. The "rose and crown" motifs have been associated with Hampshire since at least the 18th century and were formerly used by the county in heraldic badge form (although with no sanction of the College of Arms). Because the arms include the Royal crown, the Queen's permission had to be sought and a Royal Warrant was issued.

Use of the flag

The County Council is the representative body for the county. As arms may only be granted to individuals and bodies corporate, the arms of Hampshire County Council represent the county and its people. No-one other than Hampshire County Council is allowed to fly the flag.

Pascal Vagnat, 4 April 1996
