Flag design[edit]

The flag is a banner of the arms of the former Middlesex County Council, abolished in 1965. Whilst such banners of county arms are legally not generally available for public use, a similar design had been used traditionally as a local badge in Middlesex and neighbouring Essex for centuries.

The pantone colours for the flag are:[1]

  • Red 485
  • White
  • Yellow 116
