This flag is being marketed for Shropshire.
An ermine W extending to the edges, white along the edges, and three yellow lion heads on blue triangles "inside" the W.
The coat of arms shows three lions or leopards on a blue and yellow shield (the same colours as Shrewsbury Town F.C.)
Many thanks to Liz Woodall who writes "What I can tell you is that the three heads are known in the county as loggerheads (leopard's heads), and there is a small town of the same name on the Shropshire/ Staffordshire border." And she goes on to say that the coat of arms was developed by the county council in 1896.
