In 1980 Thorold adopted this red, white and blue design as it's official logo. The central position of the ocean-going vessel is representative of Thorold's unique role in the shipping trade. On the top, the two gold industrial cogs are symbols of the local industry while at the base, the gold maple leaf emphasizes Thorold's pride in being Canadian.
Situated on the Welland Canal, Thorold with a population of 15,000 is the home of renowned twin locks.
Mayor Don McMillan suggested a "Thorold Flag" to Reverend Canon Ralph Spence who drew up the design.
