The Oxfordshire Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this historic English county.

The flag displays a banner of arms of the former Oxfordshire County Council, first granted in 1949 and widely used by organisations within the county.

An Oxford ox head sits upon white waves that represent the rivers Thames and Ox. It lies between symbols representing the county’s agriculture and woodland, all on a field of Oxford blue.

A number of local organisations supported this registration. They include: Oxfordshire Cricket Club; Oxfordshire Riding Club; Oxfordshire Hockey Association; Oxfordshire Army Cadet Force; Oxfordshire Home Guard Living History Group; Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Union of Golf Clubs; Oxfordshire County Pool; and Oxford and District Anglers Association.
