This week I saw two flags in Newcastle which we don't appear to have on the
Firstly, flying above the Hancock Museum at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, a banner of arms of the university. The flag is blue with a white cross of St Cuthbert with a red lion on a white chief. The blazon is: argent in chief a lion passant guardant gules, on a field azure a Saint Cuthbert cross argent.
Secondly, the flag of Newcastle City Council - a logo on a bedsheet. On a white background, the word "Newcastle" above the words "City Council" "right justified" in smaller letters. To the right of the writing is a stylised picture of a castle. I couldn't make out reverse of the flag. You can see an example of the logo, including the correct font for the words at http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/.
