The Caterham Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Surrey town.

The sinuous line along the length of the flag recalls Caterham’s hill and valley areas. Its green and yellow colours represent the Caterham car company, which was based in the village, and give the impression of racing stripes. The circle evokes the number decal of a racing car, as well as the sun. Upon the circle is a stylised cedar tree with its horizontal branches. This symbolises Caterham’s iconic cedar tree, which according to legend arrived in the community from Bethlehem.

The following community in Surrey has registered a flag: Caterham.
