A competition inviting members of the public to create a flag for will launch on Monday, February 27, and run for four weeks.
Hundreds are expected to enter the competitions, which will close on Friday, March 24, before the field is whittled down to four finalists by an expert panel.
The public will then again be involved as they choose their favourite. Winning flags will be registered with the Lyon Court and the Flag Institute’s UK Flag Registry.
Contest winners will be invited to do the flag-raising honours at official launch ceremonies in Moray and Banffshire in late summer.
Lord Lieutenant of Moray, Seymour Monro, added: “I love flags! I am sure that Moray should have its very own flag; it’s a great way of expressing our community pride.
“I am also sure that those taking part in the competition will consider Moray’s heritage, its lands and the sea, its businesses and produce, our wildlife and the vibrant colours we all enjoy up here.
