    If you Google ofner na ofno angau, it keeps bringing you to Welsh families with the surname Lewis!...

    That looks like one for Jerry B. if I'm not mistaken that is a Welsh banner with Welsh language.

    Update.... Gunny beat me to it!

    Hi Again HTM, Yes I think that you are right. Do you think that it is civil or military???

    I couldn't say for sure, but the shape and design reminds me of something that may have been used at a mediaeval pageant of some kind.

    Can't say what the flag is, but the three chevronels is the arms for Jestyn ap Gwrgan, now used by Glamorgan, and ofner na ofno angau in English is Fear him who fears not death.

    Hi Harry, I see where you are coming from and had the flag been made in bunting and printed then I would have agreed with you!! However, the flag is of a very high and expensive quality so I am inclined to think that it has a more permanent function?? Military, Civil or civil????

    Cheers HTM regards Michael

    Hi Duska, Thank you for your input!!!!!!!!!!!! Perhaps it is a Glamorgan Civic flag?? And not military? As for the translation, excellent thank you. Your translation beats the hell out of Gunny's!!!!!!!!

    Sorry Gunny, I will say no more, please don't kill me, I'm an OAP!!

    PS Like your dog Duska!!
