Description of the flag

Saint Brelade (French: Saint-Brélade, Jèrriais: St Brélade) is one of the twelve parishes of the Bailiwick of Jersey. Its name is derived from a 6th century Celtic or Welsh "wandering saint" named Saint Branwalader or Saint Brelade (also Branwallder, Broladre, Brelodre, Brélade), who is said to have been the son of the Cornish king, Kenen. He is also said to have been a disciple of Samson of Dol, and worked with this churchman in Cornwall and the Channel Islands. Legend has it that St Brelade prayed for land whilst searching for the Islands of the Blest. An island arose from the sea on which he celebrated Easter. As he departed so did the island. It was an enormous fish sent in answer to his prayers.

The parish flag shows a silver fish on a blue background.
