County Standard

County Standard

The Wiltshire South County Standard is one of the oldest in England, having been dedicated in Salisbury Cathedral in 1929. The soft blue and silver grey background symbolises the blue-grey mists often seen over Salisbury Plain. The gold trefoil nearest the hoist is on a field of blue and next is the Great Bustard, now our County Badge, and the Guide Motto, "Be Prepared". On the remaining silver grey field are five symbols representing different parts of the County - the spire of Salisbury Cathedral, the fritillary, the harebell, the hound and white horse.
