Description of the flag

AFC Wimbledon is a professional English association football club based in Kingston. The club plays in League Two of the Football League, which is the fourth tier in the English football league system. It was established on May 30, 2002. The club was founded by Wimbledon F.C. supporters in June 2002 as a direct reaction to the decision by an independent three man commission appointed by the Football Association to allow Wimbledon F.C. to relocate to Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, about 56 miles north of Wimbledon. The large majority of Wimbledon F.C. supporters very strongly opposed the idea of moving the club so far, feeling that a club transplanted to Milton Keynes would no longer represent Wimbledon F.C.'s legacy and traditions, and, having campaigned against the proposed move, viewed its official sanctioning as the "death of their club". AFC Wimbledon considers itself a spiritual successor or "phoenix" version of the original team. Wimbledon F.C. physically moved in 2003 and then changed the name the club to Milton Keynes Dons in 2004.
