Our latest entry comes from Adam Irwin who writes:

“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.”

Leigh Cotterill flag

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.”

Great design Lee, thank you very much for your submission! If you would like to submit your own design, you can do so here.

The latest design submission comes from Paul Johnson who explains:

“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.”

Our latest submitted design comes from 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.”

A very interesting design Brett!

Liverpool flag by Tom Williamson

Our first entry comes from Tom Williamson, who first presented the design in a talk to Ignite Liverpool. The design consists of a gold Liver bird on top of a red and blue background. Tom 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.”
