Down District Council, Northern Ireland uses a green-purple vertical bicolour
flag with the council logo in centre. The photo of the flag is shown here:
These miniature flags are made for joint St Patrick’s Day celebration of all Christian denominations, hence the appropriate inscription beneath the logo, which otherwise certainly does not appear there. Whether the inscription above the logo is inherent part of the flag or not, is yet to be discovered.
A better view of the logo, as shown on the road signs, is available here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Strangford_(18),_August_2009.JPG. This version also contains the words "HISTORIC DISTRICT" which seem not to appear on the flag.
