Stanbridge Township is located in Brome-Missisquoi Regional Municipality, Montérégie.
The flag is a banner of the arms, the three edges in chief fly and base bordered compony Vert and Argent. It was granted on May 18, 1990 and is blazoned "Vert issuant above a chevron Argent charged with a chevronnel Vert a demi sun in splendour Or in base four escallops crosswise bases inward Or".
Green and gold are the colours of the community of Stanbridge. The chevron is found in the Arms of the Stanbridge family of County Essex, Great Britain and in the arms of the Rice family. The chevron also alludes to the Pinnacle, which dominates the horizon east of Stanbridge. Its colours refer to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and the Green Mountains of Vermont, where the original settlers came from in the 1790s. The shells, which are also found in the Stanbridge family arms, represent the four hamlets within Stanbridge township: Riceburg, Puddledock, Beartown and the Ridge. The sun represents the Village of Stanbridge East.
