The three gold crowns represent East Anglia, in which Cambridgeshire is located. They are placed against a blue field which is the same shade used on the East Anglia flag. The wavy lines represent the River Cam and are in the colours of Cambridge University.
The flag was chosen by a public vote, following a competition to design a flag for Cambridgeshire. Six designs were selected from numerous entries, by a panel of judges, for everyone to vote for their favourite design.
