The Exmoor Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this area of Somerset and Devon.
The design was the winner of a competition organised by Edward & Julie Christian and Tony & Ceri Keene of the Exmoor Flag Project Team, with a small financial grant from the Exmoor National Park Authority. The project was followed and supported by local media and the Exmoor wildlife presenter Johnny Kingdom. Also involved in the down-select stage were the Exmoor Magazine and a representative from the Exmoor Society.
The wavy lines of green, white and purple denote that Exmoor is a place where the sea meets cliffs, moorland and forest. Above this the wildlife is represented with a deer stag as an animal iconic of the area itself.
Above the stag, a white star on a blue background evokes Exmoor’s status as Europe’s first designated Dark Sky Reserve.
