The flag design is based on the banner of Walter de la Poyle’s arms. The de la Poyle family inherited the manor of Hampton in the C13th century, which eventually came to adopt their surname.
The golden bezants present on the arms and the flag represent gold coins brought back to the British Isles from the Crusades. Walter de la Poyle is thought to have been a crusader and Walter de la Poyle’s stone effigy in St. Mary’s Church, Hampton Poyle, where he is in Knight’s armour and hands crossed, further supports this theory.
