We offer both hand sewn & printed Leicestershire Flags, all made in our very own manufacturing facility, here in North Yorkshire, UK.
Our hand sewn Leicestershire Flags are manufactured from our 155gsm Ministry of Defence approved woven polyester flag fabric, the highest quality fabric available for outdoor flag making. The individual pieces of fabric are hand cut to MoD & Flag institute patterns and stitched together with a flat felled seam to create a strong and durable finished product. Any appliqué work is hand stitched onto the design of the flag in our 115gsm Ministry of Defence approved knitted polyester flag fabric. The appliquéd part may be printed depending on the complexity of the design, if you would like to be sure on this, please do not hesitate to call.
Our Digitally printed Leicestershire Flags are manufactured from 115gsm Ministry of Defence approved knitted polyester flag fabric, the highest quality print fabric available for outdoor flag making.
All our Leicestershire Flags are hemmed on the three exposed sides with a strong double hem (triple hem on fly, on flags over 2.5 yards), fitted with our custom red, white & blue stitch polypropylene headband tape, rope & wooden toggle as standard. Other fittings are available on ordering.
The Leicestershire Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this historic English county.
The flag combines three of Leicestershire’s traditional symbols.
The red and white zigzag (dancetté) background derives from the arms of Simon de Montfort, 6th Earl of Leicester.
The cinquefoil comes from the arms of the de Beaumont Earls of Leicester.
The running fox appears on the county crest, and many Leicestershire organisations also use it as an emblem.
Leicestershire was the last traditional English county to adopt a flag.
Jason Saber designed it and all seven Leicestershire MPs requested its adoption.
