Description of the flag

The flag of the City of Grand Forks, BC, features the municipal coat of arms which features the West Kootenay Mountains, wheat fields (agriculture), pine trees (forestry) and mining cart set against a red triangle (copper mining). The depiction of the sun reflects the location of the City in the “Sunshine Valley”.
Darrell Neuman, 1 June 2011

The motto “Divitiae ex Solo” means "riches from the soil", alluding to agriculture and mining, both prominent in the area.
