City Council approved a fresh new design for the City of Sault Ste. Marie flag in January 2016.
The City colours of gold and blue, which are predominant in the official coat of arms, are the principal colours of the flag.
The City's "Naturally Gifted" emblem has been incorporated in the design, reflecting the mountains surrounding the City and the waters of both Lake Huron (lighter blue) and Lake Superior (darker blue).
The maple leaf is emblematic of our identity as an international border city and the colour of the maple leaf represents the majestic landscapes found in our district. The flowing design of the flag mirrors the flow of the St. Mary's River.
