The flag of Nottinghamshire was unveiled at the Flag Institute’s Spring
meeting on Saturday (14th May).

Presumably the figure in the centre is meant to represent the folk hero,
Robin Hood, who has long been associated with Nottingham.

The website of
Newton Newton Flags shows a flag for Nottinghamshire County Council as a
green flag with a voided yellow rectangle, within which is the County
Council's logo - a white "n" bearing a yellow oak tree. The tree represents Sherwood Forest.

This flag is being marketed for Nottinghamshire.

The flag is based loosely on the County coat of arms, it features a tree representing Sherwood Forest, the wave is the river Trent.
Voting has just opened on the BBC Nottingham web site at
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-12891504 for a
Nottinghamshire flag. There is a selection of pictures of short listed designs
elsewhere on the BBC web site here:
which shows that this process has seemingly taken about eight months to get from
design stage to selection of short list.
