Symbols on our flag come from the official coat of arms of the municipality.
The two trilliums symbolise the English and French cultures of Ontario.
The Fleur de lys represents the francophone people which is the larger population group in the municipality.
The Barn, the center of the flag, is the significant theme and symbolises the farming community of the municipality.
The Water Waves at the bottom of the flag represent the three branches of the Castor river which crosses the municipality.
