Celebrating the historic counties of England

Guidance for councils on celebrating the historic counties - placing boundary road signs, flying county flags and celebrating county days.



This guidance sets out the rationale for the promotion of the historic counties and what local authorities can currently do in relation to these activities.

It also collates into one place the relevant guidance and regulations, Ordnance Survey mapping resources (which include ceremonial and historic maps), county flags resources and list of the county days.
