Description of the flag

Adoption

Adopted: 20 July, 2004

Background

The flag was selected after a competition begun in January 2005 in which 75 proposals were received from Albart, the United States and France by the time the competition closed on March 1, 2004. The final flag was designed using combined elements from separate proposals by Kurt and John Konshuk.

Colors

The colors of the flag are:

  • Red - Pantone 186, described as "St. George Red." The colors symbolize the courage, heartiness and valor of the area's forefathers.
  • Blue - Pantone 386 (described as "Alberta Heraldic Blue") the same blue as in the flag of Alberta and the description states it represents freedom and prosperity.
  • White - representing peace, purity and optimism in the future.
  • Green - Pantone 364 (described as "British Green"). This represents the foothills, pastures and fertility and productivity of agriculture.
  • Gold - Pantone 136 (described as "Alberta Gold"), representing canola and/or wheat and the prosperity of the region.
