Five competition designs have been selected by the judges, drawn to the same standard and approved by the Court of the Lord Lyon.

Voting closes on 31 October 2023. One vote per person.

As well as a £250 prize for the winning design, the winner will have the thrill of seeing their creation flying across the county. It will be recognised by the The Court of the Lord Lyon– the body responsible for recording and protecting all heraldry, flags and national symbols in Scotland.

Our thanks to Fallago Environment Fund for helping to fund this competition.

The Berwickshire Civic Society exists to promote interest in and care for the Berwickshire area. The Society encourages the preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historic interest. Our volunteer architectural and planning advisers are consulted by Scottish Borders Council and other bodies regarding a rising number of planning applications. Founded under the chairmanship of Earl Haig in the early 1970s, the Society was among the first civic societies to be formed and is affiliated to the Scottish Civic Trust. It is one of about one hundred similar local societies around Scotland.

Our last Annual General Meeting was held on Tuesday 15th November at 7.30pm in The Volunteer Hall Duns. Read the minutes.
