Isle of Skye set to get its own flag

The Scotsman - - NEWS DIGEST -

The Isle of Skye is to get its own flag to seal its iden­tity both at home and abroad.

A com­pe­ti­tion has now been launched to find the per­fect de­sign for the flag, which will be recog­nised by the court of Lord Lyon, the body that records and pro­tects her­aldry and flags in Scot­land.

The West High­land Free Press, High­land Coun­cil ward mem­bers and tourism body Skye­con­nect pe­ti­tioned the court with the pro­posal for a flag. It fol­lows sim­i­lar moves by Barra, South Uist, Orkney and Shet­land.
