Adopted as the Official Black Country Flag in 2012.
The original design created by 12 year old Gracie Sheppard is based on the quote “Black by day Red by night” which was used to describe the Black Country region during the Industrial Revolution.
The Black represents the coal & soot from the furnaces that could be seen in the day & the red was the glow of the same furnaces at night.
These colours are separated by white shaped into the glass cone which represents the glass blowing history of the area.
Through this runs chain which again was a staple product for which the region was known throughout the world.
