A red flag with two white wavy stripes across the base, two circular devices each made of three leaping fish around a wheat sheaf, and above those, a barry-wavy disk of white and blue.
The flag is the banner of arms. Together with the
other armorial bearings, it is presented here:
The interesting detail is that, although the field color is blasoned Gules (i.e.
red), the shade which is shown (and correctly reproduced in the forwarded image)
looks more like the color Copper, which is a distinctive tincture in Canadian
heraldry. For comparison, see the badge of Coppermine herald, a Canadian
where a very similar color is blasoned Copper.
