The Monmouthshire flag (Welsh: Baner Sir Fynwy) is the flag of the historic county of Monmouth. It was registered with the Flag Institute as the official flag of the county in 2011 although its origins date back to the 6th century.
The arms are those attributed by mediæval heralds to King Inyr of the Welsh Kingdom of Gwent, from which Monmouthshire, once known as Wentset and Wentsland, descends. The County Council of Monmouth were first granted the arms in 1948 and they have been incorporated into the arms of other bodies over the succeeding years. This is a pattern long associated with Monmouthshire and it is also used today in the shield of the Diocese of Monmouth and in those of Monmouthshire Council, Blaenau Gwent Council and the Monmouthshire County RFC.
The pantone colours for the flag are:
- Blue 300
- Yellow 108
