Tofield, Alberta, lies about 70 km southeast of Edmonton, near Beaverhill Lake, a major feeding and resting habitat for shore birds. Population is about 1700. The town and lake host the Beaverhill Lake Snow Goose Festival in April, and the birdlife is echoed in the design of the flag, with a sky full of flying birds, and a goose landing in a wetland scene before the setting sun.
The flag is not specifically described on the town's website (http://www.tofieldalberta.ca/), however an image of it, with a filename flag2.jpeg is there.
