About the Flag

One of my Black Country town flags, Finchfield, has been officially adopted and registered with the UK Flag Institute. This is for the village of Finchfield which is just to the west of Wolverhampton.

I should probably say something about the adoption process. After seeing some of my designs in the local newspaper the Finchfield Community Association got in touch with me. I was invited to two of the local schools to talk to the children about local history and the principles of flag design. The children were then given homework to design flags for Finchfield and to get their families and friends at home involved. The community association then empowered me to take the best visual and thematic ideas and draft them up to the same standard, resulting in several designs that could then be put to a public vote.
