The flag of Nottinghamshire is the flag of Nottinghamshire, a historic county of England. It was registered with the Flag Institute in 2011.[1]

Flag design[edit]

Andy Whittaker of BBC Radio Nottingham organised a competition following a suggestion by two of his listeners, Jane Bealby and Mike Gaunt. The final design was made up of elements from the designs submitted by a number of people to the radio station for consideration as the new county flag.

The flag includes a white-fimbriated red St George's Cross on a green background, and a green silhouette of James Woodford's bronze statue of Robin Hood on a white shield.[2]

The Pantone colours for the flag are:[1]

  • Green 364
  • White
  • Red 186
