One Response to Gloucestershire

    Having lived in Gloucestershire all my life (born Stow on the Wold, now in Cheltenham) I can’t but regard this flag as an insipid, wishy-washy design that does nothing for the majesty and gritty reality of my home county. No surprise that the so called High Sheriff should choose for us. No democrat he!
    OK he can retain the cross and the green of the fields and the blue of the sky (the Severn is always a muddy brown) but there should be black for the coal of the Forest of Dean instead of the wan light brown, which does no justice to the rich colour of Cotswold stone. Other counties often include an emblem in their design. There are several possibilities for Gloucestershire. Think sheep.
    Gloucestershire is not just about holiday homes and royal residencies. It has a long and proud history which this flag does little to celebrate.
