The Montgomeryshire flag is the proposed flag of the Welsh county of Montgomeryshire. It has not yet been registered with the Flag Institute.[1]

History[edit]

The flag is a banner of the arms of Brochwel Ysgithrog, famed for his resistance to the invading Saxons. In the mediæval period a coat of arms was created for him bearing three white horse heads on a black field. This represented the Saxon white horses, with their heads severed, and thus symbolised his victory over the Saxons at Chester.

The arms granted to the local council in 1951 included a black and white border as a reference to Brochwel's arms.[2]

Design[edit]

The pantone colours for the flag are:

  • Black
  • White
