I have been in touch with both local and county record offices and they know of no flag associated with Sunderland. One possible reason, is that unlike Durham and Newcastle which were centres of Norman power, the area which is now  known as Sunderland had been an established English settlement since the 7th century. However, a number of coats of arms have been granted since the 12th century.
