Suffolk County flag
The Suffolk County flag design incorporates a banner of the arms of Saint Edmund which bears two gold arrows passing through a gold crown. Edmund, a one time Saxon king of East Anglia, has strong connections with the county of Suffolk – his burial site is located at Bury Saint Edmunds, in the county. The arms featuring a Saxon crown for the martyred Saxon king, were ascribed to Saint Edmund in the mediaeval period and can be seen across the county, incorporated into the coats of arms of several towns, the badges and logos of associations and sporting bodies and the arms of the county council, although they were not used per se by any one entity. Following its hoisting by the County Council, to celebrate Suffolk Day, 21 June 2017, a campaign was launched to register the armorial banner of Saint Edmund, which was supported by twenty-one county based organisations. In light of this local support and extensive use of the emblem across the county, the flag was duly registered by the Flag Institute.
