Jersey or more correctly, The Bailiwick of Jersey. The current flag was officially hoisted for the first time in 1981 (bicentenary of the battle of Jersey) although the proposal for the adoption of a new flag dated back to the Queen's Silver Jubilee year of 1977.
The States of Jersey approved the new design on 12 June 1979, with only two votes against. The Queen officially issued the proclamation of the new flag on 10 December 1980.
Strictly speaking, the crown above the arms on the flag is not part of the arms of Jersey and was a new device introduced for some heraldic reason (potential confusion with use of the three leopards by England, I gather). The crown is described as being of 'ancient type' and is commonly called the Plantagenet crown.Contact us to purchase
