    That is fantastic! Thank you very much! You are quite right about the arms of Stafford. :D

    Please get friends and family to contact Flag Institute, we need as many people contacting the Flag Institute as possible as we fear registration of the Council's banner is imminent.

    Guess what Gramaisc, I ain't a heraldic expert :stafford:and with the flag flapping about in the breeze its hard to tell the difference anyway. Either might be correct but neither has any place on the Staffordshire County Flag.

    Agreed - and neither am I, as it seems that he is actually a lion passant guardant, due to him looking at us - but, it wouldn't matter if he wasn't there.

    Not many lions around here, as far as I know...

    As usual the CC have got the Knot the wrong way round. The SBC one is the correct way

    I also think the flag looks better without the lion and with the knot being the central feature.

    Or the knot

    Or the waffle

    But in white

    And without a flagpole

    In Egyptian cotton

    Please contact the Flag Institute with your opinion at chiefvexillologist@flaginstitute.org with communities@flaginstitute.org urging them not to register the Council's Banner as the county flag, and to consider our proposal, the Stafford Chevron, instead. :D:stafford:

    Should the Stafford Knot be on the Staffordshire flag?

    Sorry off topic.
    Well actually Gramaisc, I am a Lion. I've been a member of Stafford Lions Club for a while now and there is another 20 of us in Stafford right now.

    By the way - Well spotted bpelectric!

    Are there still the usual gang wars between the Lions and the Rotarians?
