Kingdom of West Saxon

The seadragon, known as a wyvern, was the symbol of the Saxons in England. A gold dragon on a red background, used by the West Saxons, may have been inspired by Roman era art.

The flag of the Kingdom of West Saxon. West Saxon, or Wessex, was a kingdom from 519 AD - 927 AD. It is uncertain when the flag was first used. Two different written accounts from the Battle of Burford in 752 AD mention the flag.

In 927 AD England was united. However the flag was still in use. It is depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry as being flown by King Harold II, former Earl of Wessex, at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

3'x5' flags are 3ft x 5ft, 36in. by 60in, 91cm by 152cm, 1yard by 1.7yard. This is the most common size flag you see hanging on porches, small flag poles, hanging at festivals, and inside of bars and restaurants.
