County Sligo, in Connacht, sits on Ireland’s Atlantic coast. The county is famous for the iconic and beautiful Benbulbin, which is said to be Ireland’s only table mountain. Formed during the ice age, Benbulbin takes its name from ‘Binn Ghulbain’, ‘binn’ meaning mountain and ‘ghulbain’ meaning beak. Sligo’s beauty doesn’t stop inland, with its beaches and surf forming much of its modern identity. In fact shells have always played a part in Sligo’s identity, Sligo or ‘Sligeach’ in Irish, means ‘abounding in shells’. This flag shows a single white shell, sitting on a solid black background. The shell also contains a sunset, a nod to the sun dropping west behind Benbulbin.
