The Caterham Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Surrey town.
The flag displays a green-yellow-green band running horizontally across a white field. Its colours represent Caterham Cars, the sports car manufacturer founded in the town in 1957, while its sinuous line evokes racing stripes and Caterham’s hills and valleys. A central circle recalls the number decal of a racing car, as well as the sun. Enclosed within this circle is a stylised representation of Caterham’s iconic cedar tree and its horizontal branches. According to legend this tree arrived in the community from Bethlehem.
