Last June 26, I posted about an article that poked fun, or in some cases, tried to but didn't quite make it, at US state flags. Now I've run across another article, this one poking fun at British county flags, entitled "Is your county flag one of the 20 most bonkers in the UK?"
I'm going to give you just a couple of examples from the article, but before you start in on me, yes, I know that the author either: (1) has very little knowledge of heraldic meanings; or (2) simply decided to ignore that knowledge to go ahead and poke some fun at these flags.
So with that caveat, I give you the flag of Cheshire, with the author's comment:
Cheshire: fighting off ferocious hay bales since 980 AD. That or they've got a woeful grasp of appropriate agricultural instruments.
If you're looking for a psychedelic board to play draughts on, Surrey's flag is for you.
Norfolk had a lovely banner of gold and black with a white bar. Until some bloody bird walked over the white paint!
