Living in St Helens, Merseyside I wanted to display my County Flag at various gathering, with a population of 1.3 million I was informed that there was no call for a Merseyside Flag, I accept that it is not on the flag register but it never will be if people don't push for it, I did eventually manage to have one made at quite a cost and as I am proud of my County it was worth it.

I had my flag made by a company in Scotland, it is a cloth material not printed and was quite expensive, I did get a quote for a printed one from somewhere in Manchester I will check back through my emails and post details on here,

Queen Vic I have your Email from where you asked about this flag, good detective work on your part,

BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU FLY THIS FLAG AS PEOPLE FROM SOUTHPORT & WIRRAL DON'T ACCEPT THAT THEY LIVE IN MERSEYSIDE, THEY THINK THAT THEY LIVE IN WEST LANCS OR CHESHIRE BUT YOU AND I KNOW THEY ARE ONLY FOOLING THEMSELVES AND WE KNOW THE TRUTH AS TO WHERE THEY LIVE.

Thanks very much Autotruckman. I had to laugh when I submitted the query on your website because it wouldn't let me proceed leaving the make of truck vacant. I didn't think I would get away with writing "Tonka"! LOL

Trevor you are another person who lives in the past, I live in St Helens, Merseyside people like you can claim Lancashire as much as you like but you cannot change the fact that St Helens like Southport and Wirral in in Merseyside and tuppencehaifpenny toffs like you will not change a thing.

A Yorkshireman once asked me "What can you make out of toast that you can't make out of Lancastrian's and the answer is SOLDIERS, being a Merseysider I do not take offence at this.

Now now boys!

I have emailed your supplier in Scotland and suggested that they might like to stock the Merseyside County flag as a stock item as it would appear they would be the only ones in the UK.

I live in Liverpool but I won't fly a Liverpool flag in case it is associated with the football team. I am an Evertonian and there is only one colour for me!

Found another supplier,

The white ripples are the River Mersey and the six crowns are the six Boroughs that combined to form Merseyside.

Have you seen their prices? LOL We need to persuade someone to get a load made up and keep them as a stock item. To get just one made is just too expensive.

Well Queen Vic if you are proud to be a Merseysider it does cost a bit more, If you want to live in the past you can buy a Lancashire Flag for about a tenner or less.

World of Flags have emailed me explaining why they don't stock the Merseyside County flag. They say that it is because no flag is registered with the Flag Institute. The above design was in fact the flag of Merseyside County Council which no longer exists. They also said that as soon as a flag is registered, they will stock it.
