Description of the flag

Located at the centre of the municipal flag of Flin Flon, Manitoba are one of the mine shafts in the area and 2 spruce trees, reflected in the water of a northern lake, superimposed on a Canadian maple leaf.

The colors of the flag are the official blue and gold of the City of Flin Flon. The silhouetted head frame and trees on a rocky island seen reflected in the lake symbolize the geographical setting and natural bounty of the Canadian Shield: the mineral wealth, forestry, fishery and tourism. The stylized maple leaf is meant to identify Flin Flon as a Canadian city. It is also meant as the sun rising at the dawn of an age of optimism and prosperity.
