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

Design[edit]

The flag is named the 'St Frideswide Cross', honouring a local saint. The green background represents the fields and woodlands of the county; the blue symbolises the River Thames. It was designed by Edward Keene and Michael Garber of the Oxfordshire Association, in conjunction with the Flag Institute’s Graham Bartram. The flag has been flown above the Department for Communities and Local Government.[2]

Armorial banner[edit]

An alternative commercially available flag exists, based on a banner of the coat of arms of the Oxfordshire County Council.
