Description of the flag

The flag is green with two horizontal black stripes, the upper one containing a Stafford knot. The shield of the town bears a round seal, divided per fess, above a colliery scene, below divided per pale on the left a sheaf and sickle on blue, on the right a brown shuttle on green. Behind the seal is a grey pentagon, and over all is a ribbon stating BIDDULPH. Above the shield is a St. George's cross flag.

A flag for the town of Biddulph, Staffordshire, can be seen on the webpage at http://www.nigelmachin.co.uk/biddulph/ten.htm.  I designed it for the town council. The black stripes represent the coal mining industry, and the green field the green of Biddulph Moor. The St. George's cross flag on the Biddulph flag is because the town is in England.

One line (and only one line) in a report of a Town Council meeting on the web site of the Biddulph Chronicle states as follows: "The design for the Biddulph flag was chosen from the examples submitted." This report is dated 18th February, but no year is provided.

Note: no official or independent confirmation from the local authority which the flag represents has been realised.
