It is a blue horizontal flag with the
emblem of Aldeburgh
Town Council. The description of the Arms are as follows: "ARMS: Azure on Water
in base an Ancient Ship of three masts in full sail a Ladder affixed to the side
amidships proper the mainsail charged with a Lion rampant the fore and aft sails
and pennons each charged with a Cross Gules." It was granted on October 20,1561
as a seal (untinctured); Certified (with tinctures) as Arms by the King of Arms
5th February 1951.
Here is another image of the seal and the description as follows:
"This ship in the waves of the sea, all sayles bearinge, with a Lyon rampant in the mayne sayle’, was assigned for use as ‘ye common seale for ever’ (1561)"
Additional reference to the emblem of Aldeburgh, is seen here in the "Aldeburgh Yacht Club (United Kingdom)" section.
