The flag was first designed in 2006 and flew for the first time in 2010 after a number of flags were produced. These have been displayed throughout the village on festive occasions ever since.
The design incorporates elements that represent a mill, millpond and wheel to represent the influence Sir Richard Arkwright had not just on the village, but on the whole world as, in the late 18th Century, he built a series of mills in the Cromford area which became the first factories in the world.
The colour scheme of the flag is a double representation, following both the scheme of the registered Derbyshire County flag, and echoing the colour scheme of Sir Richard Arkwright’s coat of arms.
