Notes: 

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

Designed in 2006, the flag first flew in 2010 and has appeared throughout the village on festive occasions ever since.

The design incorporates a stylised mill, millpond and wheel representing Cromford’s international importance as the birthplace of the modern factory system. The series of textile mills developed here from 1771 by Sir Richard Arkwright were the first factories in the world. Alongside neighbouring mills in the Derwent Valley, they hold Unesco World Heritage status.

The colours of the Cromford Flag – blue, green, white and gold – echo those of Derbyshire’s county flag. They also reflect Sir Richard Arkwright’s coat of arms.

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