The bear and ragged staff is the traditional emblem of the county, associated with the Earls of Warwick and even reputedly back to the pre-Norman lords. Over time the emblem has been used by numerous military, administrative, sporting and civic entities that represent the county.

The traditional design was submitted for registration by a collection of representative bodies with support from the county’s High Sheriff and Lord Lieutenant.

    Is there a West Midlands flag? I was born in Coventry and plan to have my own site. I plan to include the Union Jack and also a West Midlands flag to advertise my origins, as I am a translator.

    Coventry IS in Warwickshire. ‘west midlands’ is an aberration and it’s a shame that you grew up not knowing your true county of birth. There are only 39 counties in England and ‘west midlands’ isn’t one of them.
