Description of the Flag

Titchfield Village is a ward of Fareham Borough Council, within Hampshire County Council, England.

Here is the full story about the emblem and the flag:

Three Titchfield enthusiastic locals got together in the autumn of 2017 and convened the first of many informal meetings in the Queen’s Head pub! The mission, other than enjoying a good drink, was to try and develop more of a “Symbolic Identity reflecting the Ancient History of Titchfield”. An emblem was decided as the best way ahead and sketches started on beer mats with the aid of a local sign maker and artist, and then transferred onto a hi-tech computer with numerous graphic amendments from a local web designer. Many thanks must also go to our fourth musketeer and well-respected local historian (President of the Titchfield History Society) who sagely advised on the ancient historic past of the village. The concepts lead has since quoted: “the pub is the house of learning and where all business is best done!”

The Emblem history includes a rose petal border with a mix of red Lancastrian and white Yorkist tips representing the monarch dynasties that have visited the village. Four quadrants are separated vertically by a variation of Shakespeare spear with the tip disguised as a nib, and horizontally by Saint Wilfred’s crozier (staff) who built Anglo Saxon churches including Saint Peters church. Each quadrant symbolises important geographical sites in Titchfield i.e. the cross keys represent Saint Peter’s church, the crossed towers represent Titchfield Abbey with a lion in the centre brought in for Henry VI ‘s wedding, a medieval ship represent the old port in Titchfield. Finally, a white falcon representing what is now the bird Haven and the Wriothesley Falcon.

The Titchfield History Society is now the custodian of the Emblem. The Emblem was officially launched on 23 April 2018 in the Great Barn by the President of the History Society. This date was chosen because it was the day that Shakespeare was born (and ironically died), the wedding day of Henry VI and Margaret of Anjou in Titchfield Abbey and St Georges day the patron saint of England.

Flags are being made in mid-June 2019.

Further links with flag of the village:

There are different versions of the flag, angled with a different year on it in different colors, vertical and square.
Angled flags depict the village emblem, but square and vertical flags have modified emblem on them (no ribbon with name, and two additional lilies).
