The Shropshire Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this historic English county.
The design is a banner of the county council arms which were awarded in 1895. The leopards faces, fondly referred to as loggerheads locally, are a traditional emblem for Shropshire (also known as Salop) and have historically evolved from the lions heads on the Shrewsbury town arms which themselves were first recorded in 1623.
