While on holiday in the Lake District a few weeks ago, I saw some flag stickers on sale in a local store in Patterdale. There were advertised by the label "Fly your regional flag" or something like that, and there were three different flags. Two of them were white crosses on a blue field with the words "Cumbria" or "Cumberland" written in the cross, and the third was similar with a red cross on a yellow field with the inscription "Westmorland". As I understand it, the historical counties of Cumberland and Westmorland make up the modern Cumbria.
