The Penkhull Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this district of the City of Stoke-on-Trent (Staffordshire).
The Penkhull Flag features a golden saltire nowy charged with a blue oval bearing a golden rooster, all on a green field.
The green evokes the rural nature of this village and conservation area within the city of Stoke-on-Trent. The saltire recalls the crossroads at its heart. The blue central oval represents the classic Spode tableware of the Potteries. The rooster symbolises the weather vane on the church of St Thomas – a common emblem around the village.
Josiah Spode I lived in Penkhull, with his pottery works at the bottom of the hill.
His son, Josiah II, developed Penkhull as a dormitory suburb.
This winning design was chosen by popular vote, achieving just over 35 per cent of the poll.
It flew for the first time as part of the Penkhull Mysteries event.
