Description of the flag

The Glamorgan flag is a banner of the arms of Iestyn ap Gwrgant, the last Welsh ruler of Morgannwg, a kingdom that once covered the territory of the county of Glamorgan. The design, featuring three silver chevronels on a red field, has appeared extensively in the arms borne by various civic administrations in the county including Mid Glamorgan Council, South Glamorgan Council, West Glamorgan Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council. Additionally it is a prominent charge in the city arms and flag of Cardiff. See also

 I can confirm that the proposed flag of Glamorgan has now been registered.
Jason Saber, 24 September 2013

Who really adopted the "Glamorgan" flag? Glamorgan does not correspond to any current "administrative county".
I understand that it has only been adopted by the Glamorgan flag association and by none of the actual Glamorgan administrative entities. It was comparable to the Norman flag which has flown over the 2 regions (Lower and Upper Normandy) for years without officially representing an administrative region.
