In May 2013, the Somerset County Gazette, along with a local law firm, Pardoes, organized a county-wide competition to choose a county flag for Somerset. The competition was won by Ed Woods who submitted the traditional emblem of Somerset, which he himself had been campaigning to be registered since 2007.
