For many years Orkney used a flag with a red Scandinavian cross on gold, but the Lord Lyon, who controls flags in Scotland, refused to register it as it was too similar to the arms of the Earls of Ulster. In 2007 Orkney Council held a competition to select a new flag. This was won by Duncan Tullock of Birsay. Lord Lyon approved this design.
