Description of the flag

The flag of the Village of Salmo, British Columbia, is white with village emblem in the center and two pairs of green trees on each side. Photo of the flag thanks to Scott Sommerville, Chief Administrative Officer.

The Village:
"Salmo is a village in the West Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia, Canada. It is located in the Salmo River Valley, surrounded by the Selkirk Mountain range. Originally known as Salmon Siding (named for the original name of the Salmo River, i.e. the Salmon River), the village was founded as a small mining town near the Nelson and Fort Sheppard Railway during a gold rush in 1896. The name of the town was changed to Salmo to avoid confusion with other places with similar names. When dams were created along the Columbia River in the 1960s and 1970s, Salmo's fish stocks were depleted. It has 1,007 inhabitants." - from Wikipedia:,_British_Columbia
