Gaelic Athletics flag

[Longford GAA team flag] by Rick Prohaska, 1 November 2005
Source: Outpost Flags

A blue and yellow vertical bicolour with a centred shield, bearing a quartered shield with a blue dragon on white in the first and fourth quarters and a white boar on red in the second and third quarters.  The name LONGFORD is arched above, and An Longfort below.

This "county flag" is used by supporters of Gaelic Athletics (Gaelic Football, Hurling etc.) teams. There are as many versions of these as there are manufacturers, and none of these have official status. What is consistent is the county colours. The device on the centre is the unofficial arms used by the town of Longford until 1978 when they got a proper grant of arms (I believe it is based on the arms of Lord Longford).
