Rothwell was proposed to move from Leeds -> Wakefield

As I understand it, the capital (i.e. the location of the government of the county) was always Wakefield, not Leeds. Leeds was only ever the largest city and commercial heart. 18.104.22.168 20:15, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
- Yea, thats true, County Hall is on Wood Street in Wakefield. -- Chris as I am Chris 10:22, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Wakefield is not the capital of West Yorkshire. It was the county town of the West Riding of Yorkshire (which hasn't existed since 1974). As far as I am aware, West Yorkshire has no official county town.Mtaylor848 (talk) 12:45, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Can you please help expand West Yorkshire Derby?
I am calling upon all users with knowledge on the West Yorkshire Derby(s) so that the article can be expanded. Any help or co-operation would be much appreciated. Regards IJA (talk) 14:50, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
I've reverted the addition of a "Flag of West Yorkshire" (File:Flag of West Yorkshire.svg), as the file description page makes it clear that it's the former flag of the county council, abolished 1986, rather than of the county as a whole - and it's totally unsourced, obscure, unfamiliar to long-standing local resident, etc. It doesn't improve this article.

Petty, unnecessary editing. Every other county has a flag or arms of some type, why not just leave it if it offers some heraldic representation. It was never revoked after all. - H (talk) 19:08, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
- Apart from your comment being 16 months late,;and that Pam was right in removing the flag, which was the county 'Council 'insignia, not the county flag and therefore neither petty nor unnecessary editing. You are correct in pointing out that that ther current Official County flag should be on the article. That will shortly be corrected. Richard Harvey (talk) 11:11, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
