Description of the flag

The County of Elgin, Ontario, has two flags. One, the traditional, is used for official functions of the county. It is the county crest on a white background. The crest is circular with an inner shield that shows a beaver under (oak or maple?) leaves. In the outer circle "COUNTY*OF*ELGIN*ONTARIO". Above is positioned a crown. The other, marketing flag, is used to promote the county and flies from the exterior of county facilities. It consists of the county logo on a white background. The logo consists of three curves - yellow, green and blue, "Elgin (in green) / County (in green-yellow)" and "Progressive by Nature (in green)" below.
Information, photos of the flags and images of the crest and the logo thanks to Brian Masschaele, Director of Community and Cultural Services.
