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

The flag uses a banner of arms of the former Oxfordshire County Council, first granted in 1949.

It consists of a dark blue field, with two broad white wavy diagonal lines representing the river Thames and its tributaries.

In the centre is a red ox head for Oxfordshire.

Upper right is a yellow wheatsheaf and lower left a yellow oak tree, recalling the county’s agriculture and woodland.

Many local bodies have used these arms and several organisations endorsed this registration.

They include: Oxfordshire County Cricket Club, Oxfordshire Riding Club, Oxfordshire Hockey Association and Oxfordshire County Pool.

Others are: Oxfordshire Army Cadet Force, Oxfordshire Home Guard Living History Group, Oxford and District Anglers Association, and Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Union of Golf Clubs.

The following communities in Oxfordshire have registered flags:
