The Kingswinford Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Staffordshire town and its people.

The flag consists of a crowned boar on a blue field to symbolise the town’s name and origins.

A boar with a Saxon crown represents the King’s Swine, while also denoting the age of the town.

The blue field represents a river forded by the boar to complete the allusion to the town’s name.

Blue is the sporting colour of Kingswinford and boars have often appeared in civic heraldry.
