The South Uist Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Hebridean island.
The South Uist flag displays a fimbriated Nordic cross modelled on the Norwegian flag, but with a green field. It has been well established in South Uist over the last decade. Its origins are uncertain but may derive from a 2003 Western Isles proposal or earlier internet proposals.
The community landlord Stòras Uibhist made the formal submission, responding to a petition organised by former local councillor Donnie Steele and signed off by the South Uist Community Council. The petition also received the approval of the Western Isles Council.
