Introduction: Bramley, England

Bramley is a charming village and civil parish in Surrey (not to be confused with Bramley in Hampshire), in south east England. It has a population of about 3,559 citizens according to the 2011 census. It is located about 29 miles south-west of London and within easy driving distance of Stonehenge. Documents record a village existed there from the Anglo-Saxon era, through the Middle Ages, and obviously into the modern era. It is located within the Surrey Hills which was designated an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" (AONB) in 1958, thus designated for conservation due to its significant landscape value. The name Bramley in old English basically means a "clearing in the birch." The village is a twinned city with Rhens, in Germany.
The flag of Bramley Parish is of a simple white bedsheet design with the city shield centered on it.

Bramley Parish Coat-of-Arms

Although I could not find a detailed explanation of all the design elements of the Bramley Arms, in the top section is a drawing of the Holy Trinity Church (dating back to the late 12th Century - but rebuilt in 1919). In the left lower section of the shield is what appears to be bundled Flax hay, a plow, and all under the sun. In the right lower section is what appears to be perhaps the Bramley Manor house?
