Our first design was submitted by Tom Williamson. He explains:
“The gold Liver bird represents the wealth and prosperity of Liverpool. The gold colour is also found on the flag of Lancashire, and I’ve chosen it to represent Liverpool’s historic ties with that county. Although the red and blue are there to represent the football teams, the red and blue are taken from the Union Jack to represent the British connection. I’ve placed the blue on the left to represent the location of the River Mersey in relation to the city.”
Our next design was submitted by Brett Guessford:
“I started with a Nordic cross to represent the Cathedrals and the Nordic origin of the term Scouser. The background is yellow to signify the wealth of the city. I have included blue for the River Mersey, as well as red and white to represent England.”
The above design comes from Paul Johnson:
“The red is from the red rose of Lancashire. The wavy blue is for the River Mersey and the sea beyond, with a gold band representing the wealth generated from Liverpool’s maritime history. The Liver Bird is white, representing peace and harmony between the city’s different communities.”
Design number four comes from Geraint Parry:
“The blue and red sectors represent the colours of the football clubs. The crosses represent the two cathedrals in the city. The historical significance of the shipping industry in the city is represented by the ships wheel.”
Our latest design entry comes from Leigh Cotterill who writes:
“The flag has a red field with a white diamond in the centre. This is inspired by one of the early flags used by the Mersey Docks and Harbour company , which symbolises the central role in the City’s history and growth that the docks have played. In the centre of the white diamond is placed the Liver Bird that is iconic of the City, the black colour with green seaweed sprig used as it is on the Council arms.”
The above entry comes from Adam Irwin.
“The City of Liverpool flag contains a single wave, this relates to the River Mersey that is at the forefront of Liverpool. The town originally consisted of 7 streets which has been represented in the number of ripples within the wave.”
The next entry is from Jordan Scott.
“Red symbolises Liverpool, and the blood of the slaves that came through the city. The blue symbolises Everton and the River Mersey. Gold symbolises the wealth of the city through it’s maritime history, and the Liverbird symbolises the city’s history.”
