Description of the flag

The Daily Nation newspaper (28 Nov 2014) reported that the disclosure that Kiambu does not have an official flag and other symbols of power caused an uproar in the county assembly, with the members questioning the origin of the one that is currently in use.

Members  said they had never approved any Motion on what constitutes the county’s flag and other symbols of power. In response, the County Secretary said that the executive was “in the process of preparing the requisite legislative proposals together with suggested county symbols, which will be forwarded to the assembly for approval”.

A flag currently being used bears in the centre a gold disk bordered grey in the centre of a red diagonal stripe.  On the grey there are the words “Governor” (above) and “Kiambu County" (below).  In the gold part they are the arms (I believe that first were the national arms and at end of 2014 substituted by the new county arms). On the white fimbriation stripes are several gold five pointed star, perhaps one for each subdivision (seems to be 6 above and 6 below?).  On the top left and bottom right are black and blue stripes respectively.

The status of this flag has not been confirmed.

On the county Facebook page a flag based on the same model can be seen but with only two stars under the black corner and six stars next to the blue one, and with a simple white disk in the center of the flag.

I would suggest that the flag with the word Governor on it would be the Governors flag.
