Black and Green are the colours of the local Rugby Club and Secondary School. The white bend represents the Former Cuckoo Railway line and the Waldron Ghyll, both of which cut through the market town. The Cuckoo has long been associated with Heathfield since it’s connections with the annual fair of Heffle, since 1315. The Gibraltar Tower – marked with a key as a reference to the Gibraltar flag – is a major landmark of Heathfield, it is used on the insignia of the local Scouts, Football Club, and Parish Council. The Tower is positioned on the top right of the flag to represent the Tower in the East overlooking the market town below.
