Description of the flag

Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council is proud to announce the outcome of the competition to design our town's first-ever flag. And the winner is 11 -year old Lily Saran.

The green and yellow background of Lily's beautiful winning entry reflects the colours of the fields and woods in our local countryside, while the silhouette of a tree refers to nature. The judges who shortlisted Lily's design for the ballot noted that the tree can also be seen as alluding to elements in the names of the twin settlements of Elstree and Borehamwood. The word Elstree is derived from a Saxon personal name, Tidwulf's tree, while Borehamwood comes from the Old English term for a farm on a wooded ridge. And the golden crown is that of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, of which they originally formed a port.
