Municipal flags in Fraser-Fort George Regional District:
The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George covers some 52,000 sq. km in central and eastern British Columbia.
Quoting the official website:
Prior to 1965, rural areas in British Columbia did not have local governments and relied on British Columbia (through its various Ministries) or incorporated as a local improvement district to access basic services such as community water or fire protection. In areas that did have a municipal government structure there was no effective way to coordinate the service needs of multiple jurisdictions or to resolve inter-jurisdictional issues which arose. The solution chosen by British Columbia was the creation of regional districts. Today, British Columbia is divided into regional districts with the exception of the most northwest part of the province, known as the Stikine region. The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George was incorporated on March 8, 1967 as one of twenty-seven regional districts in British Columbia. The first meeting of the Regional District Board of Directors took place on March 30, 1967 at which time Councillor P. Klotz from the District of Mackenzie was elected Chairman.
The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George has an emblem, shown on the official website, but no flag yet. This might not last too long. Quoting The Prince George Citizen, 22 October 2007:
The board authorized Concept Design to be retained to prepare conceptual designs for a corporate flag. The designs will be reviewed by the board at a future meeting.
