The Evenley Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Northamptonshire village.
At the hoist a vertical green stripe serves to represent Evenley’s historic village green.
Upon this are three cowslips in gold and red to symbolise the village’s rural setting.
The cowslip is Northamptonshire’s county flower and thrives in the local hedgerows.
The rest of the field is gold, Northamptonshire’s colour.
It is also a reference to the name of the village.
Evenley derives from the Old English Imley, Imnley and Evelai, which mean a flat clearing or the clearing of woodland.
Finally, upon the gold field, a lance with a St George’s pennant pierces a green dragon.
This denotes the village’s Church of St George.
