Description of the flag

The flag was adopted in 1974 when the town was incorporated. It is a white field with the Town of Wasaga Beach Seal in the middle. An interesting point is the colours shown on the seal (particularly the yellow and green) are not present on the seal anywhere else but the flag. Usually the seal is all blue plus the red maple leaf. I cannot confirm this but I believe the yellow represents the sand of the beach, blue the water, green for the lush forests and the red maple leaf to represent Canada. I also think the white may be to represent the winters and snow the town gets. I can say there are 4 public places the flag is flown: Town Hall, the Chamber of Commerce, Public Library and at a main tourist spot on Main Street.

About the seal itself. The seal shows 5 major activities locals and tourists can enjoy: swimming, snowmobiling, water skiing, fishing and boating. The town used to be the snowmobile capital of Ontario in the 70ís.

Wasaga Beach

Wasaga Beach is a small town on the shores of southern Georgian Bay in Simcoe County with a population of 20,675. The town is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada in terms of population. It has more than quintupled its original population of roughly 4000 in 1974 when it was first incorporated. The town is a popular tourist destination for those in Ontario and beyond as it is the longest fresh water beach in the world. Two million people visit Wasaga Beach between May and August each year mostly coming from the Greater Toronto area.
