The flag of the Rural Municipality of Lansdowne, Manitoba, was adopted in
2009. It is vertically divided in three fields, blue-white- blue. Flag
incorporates the Lansdowne Seal of the Oxen, Plough and Farmer and inscription.
In the middle of the white field is positioned the municipal seal. The seal of
the municipality pictures a team of oxen pulling a plow with the farmer walking
behind. The inscription reads "Industry is Wealth". The farming industry has and
continues to be the main source of wealth for the municipality for over 120
years. "R.M. of LANSDOWNE" above the seal, and "INCORPORATED 1884" below. In the
circle of the seal "MUNICIPALITY OF LANSDOWNE.MANITOBA" is written. Information
and photo of the flag thanks to Tracey Winthrop-Meyers, CAO.
