The flag represents the legend of Saint Ethelbert who was murdered by King Offa when visiting the latter’s palace, believed to be sited in the parish. Here Offa is symbolised by the Saxon Crown, his sword is shown below the upper crown to indicate his decapitation of Ethelbert, whilst Ethelbert himself is represented with a Celestial Crown to represent his martyrdom and sainthood. Where Ethelbert’s head landed a spring rose and is symbolised with the wavy line.
