Flag Raising Ceremony Celebrate City’s 104th Birthday
April 07, 2016
April 12, 2016 marks the 104th anniversary of the incorporation of Sault Ste. Marie as a city.
City Council approved a fresh design for the City's flag earlier this year. Please join us for a flag raising ceremony at the Civic Centre, 99 Foster Drive, on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at 1 p.m.
The City colours of gold and blue 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 and Lake Superior. The design includes a maple leaf, which is emblematic of our identity as an international border city. The colour of the maple leaf represents the majestic landscapes found in our district. The flowing design of the proposed flag is intended to mirror the flow of the St. Mary's River.
