Description

It is distinct from the flag flown exclusively by Birmingham City Council which is a banner of arms derived from the city's coat of arms. Any appliqué work is hand stitched onto the design of the flag in our 115gsm Ministry of Defence approved knitted polyester flag fabric.

Today the Birmingham City Council is the largest local authority in Europe, and the city continues to amaze. Birmingham was parent of both of the world's first two long-distance railway lines: the 82-mile Grand Junction Railway of 1837 and the 112-mile London and Birmingham Railway of 1838. The city would suffer heavy bomb damage during World War II's "Birmingham Blitz," but the city also made two scientific discoveries that proved critical to the outcome of the war.

It features the bull from the Bullring and a yellow abstract letter B for Birmingham - which on its side doubles as a Roman numeral "M" for 1,000 which represents the city of a thousand trades. It’s as instantly recognisable as the flag of Amsterdam (three white crosses on a black and red banner) or as widespread as the City of London flag (a St George’s Cross with a red sword in the top left corner), but the flag of Birmingham captures the spirit of our city. The name Birmingham itself comes from the Old English word Beormingaham (meaning the settlement of the Beormingas). The final design may differ slightly from the one shown in the image, the flags are supplied without a pole.

These symbolise the arms of the de Bermingham family, former Lords of the Manor and are probably taken from the effigy of Sir William de Bermingham dated 1325 and extant in the Victorian church of St Martins in the Bullring, in Birmingham city centre. It is considered to be the social, cultural, financial, and commercial centre of the Midlands and is the fourth-most visited city in the United Kingdom by foreign visitors.
