Sussex's motto, We wunt be druv, is a Sussex dialect expression meaning "we will not be pushed around" and reflects the traditionally independent nature of Sussex men and women.
The round-headed rampion, also known as the "Pride of Sussex", was adopted as Sussex's county flower in 2002.
The first known recording of this emblem being used to represent the county was in 1611 when cartographer John Speed deployed it to represent the Kingdom of the South Saxons.
However it seems that Speed was repeating an earlier association between the emblem and the county, rather than being the inventor of the association.
