Notes: 

The Cromford Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Derbyshire village.

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.

The following community in Derbyshire has registered a flag: Cromford.
