Description of the flag

A new proposal for the island flag is presented at the British County Flags blog. It is derived from the flag of South Uist by reversing blue and green colors. Image above of described flag is derived from the SVG image of the flag of South Uist from Wikimedia Commons.

History Portal proposal

[Tentative Flag of North Uist] image by Tomislav Todorovic, 16 February 2017

This design appears at the Italian website History Portal (/Portale Storia/): horizontally divided gold-white-red with a blue vertical stripe at the hoist and a black castle in center of white field; the castle has two towers and in central part between these, there are three rows of windows (4, 3 and 4) depicted in gray. For this flag, unlike that of Harris (see above), no source was given by the site author.

A variant of this design appears at the Flags of the Earth website: with narrower white and blue stripes and different shades of all colors, even with white appearing grayish; most of these differences must be errors, for they also appear in other flags shown at the page. The castle also has different shape, the biggest difference being in windows, which are white and there are four of them in each of three rows.

This flag of North Uist is described in a discussion about the source of the flag of Lewis as being blue, charged with a large white star. The information is said to have originated from the Virtual Hebrides website and its message board, from about 1997. A Wikipedia discussion about the removed content of the North Uist page at displays an image of the flag, with a dark shade of blue and the star set near the hoist. However, the source cited is a FOTW mirror site which was closed down several years ago and this flag seems to have never been presented there with an image. [For my part, I cannot remember having ever seen it at the FOTW website or any of its mirrors.] Still the design does match the known description.
