The flag is green with two horizontal black stripes, the upper one containing a Stafford knot. The shield of the town bears a round seal, divided per fess, above a colliery scene, below divided per pale on the left a sheaf and sickle on blue, on the right a brown shuttle on green. Behind the seal is a grey pentagon, and over all is a ribbon stating BIDDULPH. Above the shield is a St. George's cross flag.
A flag for the town of Biddulph, Staffordshire, can be seen on
the webpage at
http://www.nigelmachin.co.uk/biddulph/ten.htm. I designed it for the
town council. The black stripes represent the coal mining industry, and the
green field the green of Biddulph Moor. The St. George's cross flag on the
Biddulph flag is because the town is in England.

One line (and only one line) in a report of a Town Council meeting on the web
site of the Biddulph Chronicle states as follows: "The design for the Biddulph
flag was chosen from the examples submitted." This report is dated 18th
February, but no year is provided.

Note: no official or independent confirmation from the local authority which
the flag represents has been realised.
