Notes: 

The Appleby-in-Westmorland Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Westmorland town and its people.

The apple tree displayed on the Appleby-in-Westmorland Flag derives from the 13th-century town seal. The tree represents a play on the town’s name and appears here in gold on a blue field. Blue and gold are the town’s livery colours, taken from its grant of arms.

The same tree (in gold) also appears on the Westmorland Flag. The sharing of this symbol reflects Appleby’s status as the county town of the historic county of Westmorland.

Appleby changed its name in 1974 to preserve the Westmorland name following the county’s abolition in that year.

The following community in Westmorland has registered a flag: Appleby-in-Westmorland.
