The Digbeth Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this district of Birmingham (Warwickshire).
Digbeth Residents Association requested the registration of this flag. It first flew at the Digbeth O’Lympics on 19 September 2010.
The Digbeth Flag comprises three distinct horizontal bands.
Uppermost is a band of light blue, the ancient heraldic colour of Ireland. It represents Digbeth’s Irish heritage and also evokes the sky.
A central black band displays four white semi-circles. These evoke the Victorian railway viaduct that bisects Digbeth, towering over the area beneath the blue sky.
A lower white band features four black semi-circles above black ripples. These symbols evoke the viaduct reflected in Digbeth’s canals and in the river Rea. This river, which now flows underground, was the birthplace of Birmingham. The ripples also represent audio speakers and music, denoting Digbeth’s current role in the urban arts scene.
