Start off with a very new one...

Orkney Islands.

"For many years Orkney used a flag with a red Scandinavian cross on gold, but the Lord Lyon, who controls flags in Scotland, refused to register it as it was too similar to the arms of the Earls of Ulster. In 2007 Orkney Council held a competition to select a new flag. This was won by Duncan Tullock of Birsay. Lord Lyon approved this design."

The War of the Roses





Edit:The traditional Lancashire flag, a red rose on a white field, was never officially registered. When an attempt was made to register it with the Flag Institute it was found that this flag had already been officially registered by the town of Montrose, Scotland, several hundred years earlier with the Lyon Office. As the Flag Institute will not register two flags of the same design (within the UK) Lancashire's official flag is now registered as a red rose on a gold field, but it does not stop it from having the red rose on a white field in some areas in the county.
