The triangle issuing from the hoist firstly recalls the name of the village by symbolising the top of the River Nent valley. Secondly the triangle also refers to the fact that the nearby Knowbury Hill is the eastern-most point of the historic county of Cumberland – the shade of green being the same as that in the Cumberland flag. Upon the triangle is placed the eight-pointed star of Quakerism to recall the origins of the town. Below the green triangle are a series of black and white hoops which depicts the streams of lead (black) and silver (white – argent ‘silver’ in heraldic terminology) that lie beneath the area and upon which the industry of the village was built.
