The Coventry flag was the winner of a competition run by BBC Coventry & Warwickshire. The design featured Coventry’s famous heroine, Lady Godiva, who represents the city’s ancient heritage together and the strong principles of its people. She is placed on a broad white pale, the colour of which represents the modern history of Coventry as a city of peace. Either side of the colour blue recalls the sporting colour of the city and the Coventry Blue dye used in the historic textile industry.
