While on holiday in the Lake District a few weeks ago, I saw some flag
stickers on sale in a local store in Patterdale. There were advertised by the
label "Fly your regional flag" or something like that, and there were three
different flags. Two of them were white crosses on a blue field with the words "Cumbria"
or "Cumberland" written in the cross, and the third was similar with a red cross
on a yellow field with the inscription "Westmorland". As I understand it, the
historical counties of Cumberland and Westmorland make up the modern Cumbria.

The website of
Newton Newton Flags shows a flag of Allerdale Borough Council as a white
sheet bearing the Borough Council's arms, crest, supporters and motto. Details
of the arms can be found on Ralf Hartemink's
Civic Arms site.
