The Calne Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Wiltshire town.
The blue fly represents the river Marden which flows through the town.
The green hoist evokes the surrounding countryside, with a white stripe symbolising the underlying chalk of the landscape.
The gold band linking the colours celebrates Dr Joseph Priestley’s discovery of oxygen in Doctor’s Pond in 1774.
