The Exmoor Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this area of Somerset and Devon.
Wavy horizontal lines of green, white and purple denote Exmoor as a place where the sea meets cliffs, moorland and forest.
Above these are a white stag’s head with a white star above, all on a blue background.
The stag’s head represents Exmoor’s iconic wildlife, while the star evokes Exmoor’s status as Europe’s first Dark Sky Reserve.
Several bodies brought this project to fruition.
The Exmoor Flag Project Team* organised a design competition, with financial assistance from the Exmoor National Park Authority.
Local media and Exmoor wildlife presenter, Johnny Kingdom (1939—2018) promoted the competion.
The Exmoor Magazine and the Exmoor Society also took part at the shortlisting stage.
* Edward Christian, Julie Christian, Tony Keene and Ceri Keene
