EIGHT Judges had the difficult task of short listing 300 Exmoor Flag design entries on Wednesday (August 6).

Five finalists have gone through to the public vote which opens August 18.

Dulverton, home of Exmoor National Park’s head office, raised flags in celebration of the judging day.

Community vexillogist Philip Tibbetts said, “The range and quality of entries was very impressive and clearly reflects the beauty of Exmoor itself and the passion of its people.”

Votes can be made online at exmoorflag.co.uk.
