Peter Saville draws inspiration from St George
As the North West of England prepares to decide on whether it wants a regional assembly, a new flag has been unveiled to help spark debate.
Send us YOUR design ideas.
The Necessary Group is a coalition of people supporting devolution, launched by TV presenter and former Factory Records boss Tony Wilson.
With the help of designer Peter Saville, who designed (amongst other things) all of Joy Division's record sleeves, they've come up with a flag they think represents what it means to be from the North West.
Cynics may argue that it's just an off-centre St George's flag, but as the issue of regional identity becomes a hot topic of debate ahead of this October's referendum, symbolic images encapsulating what it means to be from that particular part of the world are likely to factor in the debate.
So what do you think of Peter Saville's design? Do you think you could do better? Have you got a great idea for a flag design to represent ANOTHER part of the UK?
