Carmarthenshire Council Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Carmarthenshire Council,
Please could you inform me if there has been any, or is, any internal discussion to register a county flag of Carmarthenshire --whether novel or traditional in design-- with the Flag Institute (the de facto flag registration body in England and Wales), free for the public to fly. In light of various other historic counties of Wales, including neighbouring Glamorgan and Pembrokeshire having flags registered with the Flag Institute, I would like to know if the county council are moving towards either having one registered, or supporting a bid by a third party to have a Carmarthenshire flag registered.

Yours faithfully,
Rhys Jones
