About the Yorkshire flag

Flags and symbols of Yorkshire have been used to identify Yorkshire and its related councils through vexillological flags and symbols (including coats of arms). This article also includes flags and symbols used by the present and former local authorities covering Yorkshire.

The flag used to represent Yorkshire is a White Rose of York on a blue background. The design dates from the 1960s. The flag was registered by the Flag Institute on 29 July 2008 at the request of the Yorkshire Ridings Society. The design registered by the YRS was one of three rival flag designs for Yorkshire.
