About our flag

In 2007, a community contest was held to create a new municipal flag for Kawartha Lakes. The winning design was submitted by Daryle Anne Wright of Oakwood. The blue stripe represents the many lakes and rivers in the area. The green stripe represents the agricultural areas, as well as parks and trails. The sun celebrates Kawartha Lakes as a destination, and the evergreen trees represent the sustainable growth of the municipality.

According to people who study flags, the North American Vexillological Association,flags should be simple with meaningful symbolism using 2 or 3 basic colours. It should have no lettering or seals and never use writing of any kind or an organization’s seal.
