Here is the description of the flag of the Town of Ajax, Ontario:
"The flag depicts the Town of Ajax Crest. Ajax is named after a naval vessel, the British cruiser, "HMS Ajax", which served with distinction during World War II. The Ajax Town Crest is closely derived from that of the HMS Ajax. It shows a naval crown on a pentagonal frame of twisted rope. In its centre is a gold helmet with a red crest, symbolizing the ancient Greek hero Ajax, the strong and courageous fighter who rescued the body of Achilles from the Trojans."
Information and photo of the flag thanks to Louise Soulliere, Legislative and Information Services.
