Thanks to the College of Arms, Huntingdonshire has a flag, for when they granted arms to the former County Council they included a flag. The flag appears in the crest; a red lion holds aloft a flag-staff and that flag is a banner representing Huntingdonshire. The flag is heraldically described as "Vert charged with a hunting horn stringed or", or in plain English green with a gold, ribboned hunting horn.
The arms are now owned by Huntingdonshire District Council. They are the Council's private property (as all heraldic arms are privately owned; there has never been a concept of the arms of a county as such.) The flag is unofficial, as all county flags are, but as it appears on an official grant of arms, the Huntingdonshire county flag comes as close to "official" status as any can do, we believe."
According to the fact that the Huntingdonshire coat of arms is now the official coat of arms of Huntingdonshire District Council (in Cambridgeshire), I believe that this is the flag of that entity.
