Black Country Flag
The Black Country is a region of the West Midlands in England, west of Birmingham. It became known as the Black Country due to the area being one of the most industrialised parts of Britain with vast amounts of cheap coal being used by businesses to produce iron products in the Industrial Revolution. The thick carbon smoke produced black deposits that covered everything.
The Black Country County Flag was adopted in 2012 following a competition and features the chain representing the former industrial past. The black and red colours represent the black smoke and red sky glowing at night from industry and the cone is the furnaces that were such a common sight in the area
Our Printed Black Country County Flag
High Quality Printed Knitted Polyester Flags
All county flags are digitally printed onto 115 g knitted polyester which conforms to British MOD specification. Flags are double stitched hem all around and a reinforced hem on the hanging side. Supplied with metal eyelets fixing ready to fly.
Poly Mesh Black Country County Flag
Poly-mesh Black Country County flag is also made from knitted polyester 115gsm (grams square metre) and has very small holes across the entire flag which allows the air to flow through the flag to flutter rather than whip in the high winds so they last longer in exposed areas. Poly Mesh flags are ideal for coastal areas, church towers, roof tops, harbours and exposed areas.
Anti-Fray is optional. Anti-fray is sewn onto the opposite end of the reinforced flag fixing side and the mesh takes the wear out of the flag allowing flags to last longer with more durability.
