Flag - City of Thunder Bay
In 1972, Mayor S. Laskin wished to promote the City of Thunder Bay by having a distinctive City flag. A small committee was formed and an invitation went out in the form of a contest for submission of a flag design. The winning design was submitted by Mr. Cliff Redden, a local citizen.
The flag is of standard size - one unit in width/two units in length. The design forms a golden sky from a sun behind the green Sleeping Giant, sitting in the blue waters of Lake Superior. The red maple leaf is the signification of Canada. The green and gold also represent the City's colours.
