Which means that 19, the red rose, is Lancashire.

OK, I've nabbed the easy ones. I'll take a back seat now! :rofl2:

Cheshire has got to be number 5. The three sheaves are used on the Chester Motor Club (my club) logo and the Duke of Westminster's arms as well I think.
It is indeed Paul, here is the reading from the County flags website about the Cheshire flag

39 Yorkshire
19 Lanky shire
30 Walesshire
And I suspect 4 to be Durhamshire (Land of the Prince Bishops).

Yes, and the Warwickshire was right too. For each flag there is some tremendous detail. The Cheshire link I posted up in particular has loads!

Dragonses are Welsh, so it's Wales or Westeros.

Number 34 contains Martlets - or the drunken birds of Sussex, as they're legless (so can't land).
And 6 must be Kernow - down at the bottom left of the country.

I had a very entertaining trip to meet a friend. Due to the fact that Leicestershire will be tier 3 next week we decided to meet at the county border and conduct our business but it didn't stop me getting a picture of the A6 as it enters Leicestershire from which I claim the final England county. As you can see from the second picture it was an "only just" picture :-D :
