The Herefordshire Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this historic English county.

The red field represents Herefordshire’s famous red earth. It also evokes the reddish-brown coat of the Hereford breed of cattle. In the top centre is the head of a Hereford bull with its typical wide white face, while the three wavy stripes in blue and white represent the River Wye flowing through the county.

The flag was chosen in a public competition organised by the Herefordshire Flag Committee.

It was hoisted for the first time in a ceremony at Hereford Cathedral in November 2019.

The following community in Herefordshire has registered a flag:
