The Town of Provost (approximate population: 1,980) is located 290 SE of Edmonton and 20 km West of the Saskatchewan border. The flag consists of the Town's Coat of Arms on a white background.
The following description was provided to me by Leila Grobel, Economic Development Officer, Town of Provost:
A large wheat stalk on each side dominates the Town's Coat of Arms, symbolizing the agricultural history of the community and the peace pipe in the center is reflective of the signing of Treaty No. 6 at Sounding Lake, located directly southwest of Provost.
