Notes: 

In May 2013, the Somerset County Gazette, along with a local law firm, Pardoes, organized a county-wide competition to choose a county flag for Somerset. The competition was won by Ed Woods who submitted the traditional emblem of Somerset, which he himself had been campaigning to be registered since 2007.  The design is similar to that of the County Council, where the dragon carries the council’s mace.
