Where has this Dorset flag sprung from? Is it correct?

First published in Your Letters

Cornwall has one, Devon has one, Somerset has one - and now Dorset seems to have one on the Keep Military Museum, a flag that is.

For as long as I can remember - I've never seen a flag for Dorset.

We're all probably familiar with the St Pirin flag of Cornwall - black with a white cross and - some of us will have seen the newly created Devon flag (green with a white cross).

So I was a little amazed to suddenly see several online shops selling a so-called Dorset' flag.

It appears to be white with three red lions in heraldic style similar to the Dorset County Council seal.

Can this be right? Are their any vexillologists out there who can confirm this correct for Dorset?
