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.
