The search has begun for a flag design to represent the Isle of Skye.
The competition, organised by the West Highland Free Press and supported by Highland Council and SkyeConnect, is open to people of all ages from anywhere on the planet. The competition is being guided by the Court of the Lord Lyon - the ancient body responsible for the registration of all flags and Coats of Arms. The Honorary Vexillologist to the Court of the Lord Lyon, Philip Tibbetts has been on Skye visiting schools to encourage the pupils to enter the competition. During his visit SkyeConnect’s Communications Manager, Simon Cousins, made a short film about the search for ‘A Flag for Skye’.
