Isle of Skye set to get its own flag
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.
