John Chambers reports in The Lindsay Daily Post, 1 May 2007, that the City of Kawartha Lakes might soon have an official flag:
Ward 12 Coun. Gord James' proposal to create an official flag for the City of Kawartha Lakes received broad support from the corporate and human resource services committee Monday.
Under James' proposal, a community contest would be held that is open to individuals, schools, community groups and business organizations. A small committee of three individuals representing the city's north, central and south areas would act as judges and establish criteria. The proposal is expected to be brought forward to council's May 8 meeting. Committee members on side with the plan noted that with ongoing branding initiatives within the city, a single unified flag representing the 14 former townships and 16 new wards, would be an asset to the city.

From the Kawartha Lakes website:
Congratulations to Daryle Anne Wright of Oakwood who won the Flag Design Contest with 1998 votes! The flag features the sun and 2 green trees over waves of green and blue. Ms. Wright will be awarded the Grand Prize of $500.
Colours - Blue represents the Trent Severn Waterway and the lakes of the Kawartha Lakes. Green represents our agricultural areas and trails. Yellow/Orange represents that we are a tourist destination. All of these colours represent the City of Kawartha Lakes.
Symbols - The evergreen trees symbolize the "green" growth of our city and agriculture. The sun symbolizes that we are a tourist destination area, also a recognizable symbol from the logo.
Overall Design - This design represents special areas we are known for: our lakes and waterways, our agriculture and trails as well as our tourist destinations.
