Most interesting storie: Sport in Yorkshire
Sport in Yorkshire is taken very seriously and the county prides itself on having some of the strongest sides in the country. This is especially true of the sports that field representative sides from the county and every Yorkshire side that steps on to the field, or the court, on the track, or even in the pool, will truly believe that they are representing the strongest county in the country.
The emblem worn on every Yorkshire representative shirt, or vest, is the white rose
. The flower represents the House of York which the county sided with during the English Civil War. During the battle, they were opposed by the Hose of Lancaster, whose symbol was the red rose, and this has been adopted by Yorkshires fiercest rivals Lancashire.
