The East Anglia Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this historic region.

The flag consists of the red St George’s Cross of England, combined with a blue shield bearing three gold crowns.

The three gold crowns on blue are also the arms of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of East Anglia.

Medieval heralds ascribed them to the kingdom and to its earliest ruling dynasty, the Wuffingas (c. 599β€”749 CE).
