The poll will be open until April 21st and the winning design will be unveiled in May.

Chairman of the county council Cllr Joan Kirkbride said: “Over the past two years here in the UK we have had ample opportunities to get out there and wave flags. Whether it has been to celebrate the Royal Wedding, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee or supporting our Olympic heroes.

“The Parliamentary Flags and Heraldry Committee is now encouraging communities across the country to get involved and register their own flags. We think this is a golden opportunity for Northamptonshire to find a flag we can be proud of.

“We are looking for a flag which can help raise recognition of Northamptonshire across the country, express pride in our local community and celebrate the heritage and culture of our corner of the country.
