The East Riding Flag is a community flag proclaiming the unique identity of this historic riding of Yorkshire.
The white rose is displayed in the East Riding style (upside down from the usual Yorkshire rose). The blue represents maritime activities and the green represents agricultural industries. The blue is placed on the hoist side to represent the Riding’s connection to the whole of Yorkshire whilst the green is placed towards the fly to represent its position to the east.
The flag was chosen by a public vote, following a competition to design a flag for the East Riding which was launched on Monday 7 January 2013 on BBC Radio Humberside. Six designs were selected from numerous entries, by a panel of judges, for everyone to vote for their favourite design.
