Many of the Welsh county councils have arms and have the potential to develop attractive flags based on these arms, although by and large they have adopted very stylized logo-flags, usually with the names prominently written out in Welsh and English.

I attach the flag for Pembrokeshire.
Jaume Ollé, 4 April 1997
A banner for Pembrokeshire is displayed on www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk, where the flag shown above can be seen as part of the banner.

Note that the banner in the photo has on it the Pembrokeshire flag, though the rose seems different in detail, but I wouldn't ascribe any significance to that. I can confirm that the flag existed and was informally used when I was on holiday in Pembrokeshire a few years ago.

Pembrokeshire has a contest for a county flag. See article at http://www.pembrokeshiretv.com/content/templates/v6-article.asp?articleid=1281.

The web site points out elsewhere that Pembrokeshire already has a flag [shown above] and this is a completely unofficial competition. They are also asking for information on an earlier Pembrokeshire flag.

Hay-on-Wye is a market town of 1,500 people on the Welsh-English border. Hay resident Richard Booth, owner of the world's largest used-book store, declared himself King Richard I of Hay on 1 Apr 1977. King Richard has proven himself to be a rather mellow monarch, declaring that in Hay, "There must be no authority from anyone. Long live Anarchy, Prosperity to the People!" The new nation supports itself by selling dukedoms (£25) and earldoms (£5), as well as T-shirts and tote bags.
