Notes: 

The Anglesey Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this historic Welsh county.

Its design is a banner of the arms attributed to Hwfa ap Cynddelw, a locally celebrated ruler. The earliest reference to these arms dates from the fifteenth century. It appears in the work of Lewys Glyn Cothi, a bard who wrote extensively on heraldic subjects.

The arms were a recognised county emblem used informally by Anglesey County Council before 1954, as well as by Anglesey Constabulary and Anglesey Fire Brigade. Local cultural groups also continue to use them.
