The golden waves on the deep blue represent our famous sandy beach and sea views, with sand dunes as a backdrop. The beach and sea are nationally known for their views but also for their use by sand sports enthusiasts and kiting experts. Towards the hoist portion of the design is charged a white lifeboat which represents the “Laura Janet”, the lifeboat which was lost with great loss of life in the biggest disaster in the RNLI’s history. It represents therefore the maritime heritage of our town as well as the bravery and sacrifice of its citizens. The boats’ placement towards the hoist of the design recalls the areas original name of “West End”, when the area was the western part of the ancient Parish of Lytham. before it became a parish in its own right in the late 19th Century.
