Edmontonian Flag?


Our city leaders are asking for input on replacing the Edmonton flag by blog and twitter.



Our submission features Edmonton's river valley framed by a unique 'e' that symbolizes our sunny city.



Within the 'e' we've outlined a fish and beaver tail that represent our river's life and our fur trading heritage.

A gust of wind causes the flag's river to ripple, the fish to swim and the beaver to flap its tail.

The yellow echoes our agriculture including canola fields that are nourished by our fertile land.

The green, blue and purple symbolize the land, river and sky, and honour the original flag and Treaty 6.



The 'e' design is inspired by a NASA view as seen by pilots, thus recognizing our region's leadership in aviation.

The e's perimeter is formed by Anthony Henday Drive, and symbolizes the warmth extended to those entering our city.

Edmonton Facts

Edmonton forms Canada's largest city region, encompassing 9,427 square kilometers.

Our river valley covers 7,300 hectares and constitutes Canada's largest urban parkland.

North America was invaded by rats in the 18th century but they were eradicated from Alberta 50 years ago.

Beavers, bison, cougars, coyotes, deer, hares, porcupines, moose, skunks and squirrels are seen in Edmonton.

Our province offers Canada's highest quality of life and one of the world's best according to a 2014 report.

This year we've put up a new Walterdale Bridge, Royal Alberta Museum and hockey arena.

Within 28 years the human population of our metro region may double to 2.2 million.
