Description of the Flag

Chatsworth House is the seat of the Dukes of Devonshire. In the chapel the personal Garter standards of the 10th, 11th, and 12th Dukes of Devonshire were suspended from the roof, but they were too high for me to make out the details. However, these three gentlemen have all been Chairmen of the Chesterfield Town Football Club, which has languished in the Second and Third Divisions of the Football League for most of the previous century. The flag of the club is mounted on a floor stand in the Duke's private study. Using the description on a card mounted on a card alongside the flag, one can say that the flag is 'claret coloured, with a golden fringe around the three outer edges of the flag. The centre of the flag contains the arms of the Town of Chesterfield embossed in gold, and beneath these arms are the words "CHESTERFIELD TOWN F. C.,".' To be more precise, the words CHESTERFIELD TOWN are in gold block lettering. Beneath these words the letters F. C. are similarly written, with the F. written beneath the letter 'I' in CHESTERFIELD, and the letter C. beneath the space between CHESTERFIELD and TOWN. The flag there was made of heavy silk.

Interesting balance with the F.C. - I can only assume that the club was at some point A.F.C. (which is a common abbreviation for *association* football club), and when the A. was removed the letters weren't evened up.
