The Wreay Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this Cumberland village.
The green field refers to the verdant position of the village next to the River Petteril, whilst the yellow cross is for the bold faith of the Wreay. In the canton appears two crossed smoking pipes that denote the local institution of the Twelve Men of Wreay and the silver bell from the history of the village.
Although registered in 2015 the flag was created in the late 1980s. Prior to registration the pipes and bell appeared in the upper fly quarter, but these were moved to the canton upon registration to improve the visibility of these symbols.
A Wreay flag has been flown at the South Pole, the specific flag in question was officially stamped as proof of the feat and is now displayed in the village pub.
