The flag was chosen as part of a public competition, and unveiled in a ceremony at Hereford Cathedral.
The basic colour of the flag is dark red to reflect the famed red earth of the county. A large illustration of a bull’s head, from the celebrated Herefordshire breed, is featured at the top centre of the flag. The breed, which originated in the county before spreading worldwide, is also typically a dark reddish brown, with a wide white face. Three wavy stripes, blue and white, represent the River Wye which flows through the county.
