The flag was organised by the Lord Lieutenant for the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. The county is also known as the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright.
The green and white quarters reference the checks that appear on the former council arms and in turn refer to the checked cloth used to count taxes by the Stewards of the Lords of Galloway that gave the area the name Stewartry. Over the top of this is a St Cuthbert’s cross to reference the origin of the name Kirkcudbrightshire as ‘shire of the church of Cuthbert’
