About the official Rutland County flag

The Flag of Rutland is the proposed flag of the county of Rutland. It was registered with the Flag Institute on 17 November 2015.

The flag is a banner of the arms of the Rutland County Council, granted to the council in 1950. The description is: Vert, semée of acorns, a horseshoe Or. The crest is: on a wreath of the colours, in front of a horseshoe an acorn Or, leaved and slipped proper.

When Rutland regained its status as an administrative body in 1997, a banner of the arms was raised to demonstrate this restoration of status. A simplified version of the flag is available from a number of commercial outlets that rearrange the acorns into a circle around the horseshoe.
