The Exmoor Flag was unveiled at a historic ceremony on the 29th of October 2014 at the West Somerset Railway’s Minehead Station where the flag arrived blazoned on a majestic steam locomotive. The launch of the Exmoor Flag coincided with the Exmoor National Park Authority’s celebrations of its 60th anniversary.
The creation of a flag for Exmoor was the idea of four friends Ceri & Tony Keene and Edward & Julie Christian from the village of Brushford on the southern edge of Exmoor National Park. They felt that Exmoor needed its own emblem for people to express their pride in their community and to promote and celebrate Exmoor’s rich and varied landscape across the globe. The friends set up The Exmoor Flag Project (EFP) to organise an open to all, free to enter competition to democratically design and select the winning flag. The Exmoor Flag Project was financed by the EFP Team with the assistance of a small grant from The Exmoor National Park’s Partnership Fund.
