The design features a golden saltire nowy on a green field, itself charged with a blue oval bearing a golden rooster.
The green recalls the fact that Penkhull is known for retaining its village like qualities within the heart of the City of Stoke-on-Trent. The saltire recalls the crossroads around which the village has grown. The blue of the central oval recalls the Potteries classic Spode Italian tableware. Josiah Spode lived in Penkhull with his pottery works below the hill on which Penkhull stands. The rooster symbolises the church’s weather vane that has become a common emblem around the village.
The winner received just over 35% of the popular vote and was unveiled as part of the Penkhull Mysteries event
