Community Flag Raising

The Town recognizes the symbolism of displaying flags as a visual statement which promotes an environment of understanding and mutual respect.  The Town has established guidelines for the display of Community Flags at Community Flagpoles and provide a framework to ensure that Community Flags in the Town are flown and displayed in an appropriate and consistent manner.

You can submit a community flag raising request to use the Town’s community flag pole by filling out the online form listed below, under “Downloads”. 

Requests to use the community flag pole are governed by the Town’s Community Flag Raising policy (By-law 1604/23) and must be submitted in writing in the form prescribed by the Legislative Services Department at least 30 business days in advance of the proposed flag raising.
