Notes: 

The Denny and Dunipace Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Stirlingshire town.

Denny and Dunipace was the first town in Scotland to hold a competition to select a town flag.

The wavy blue and white lines evoke the river Carron, which separates and unites Dunipace (north) and Denny (south).

The two towers of the castle recall the twin settlements.

The castle also symbolises the river’s name, which perhaps originates from Gaelic ‘caer avon’ or ‘river of forts’.

The eleven-pointed star represents the eleven mills that stood here in the mid eighteenth century.

The colours reflect those of the former civic arms, the white in particular marking the important treaties signed here.
