Municipal flags in Kitimat-Stikine Regional District:
The flag of the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, British Columbia,
consists of three horizontal stripes green-white-green where the white stripe
is much wider. On the white stripe are positioned the RD logo and "Regional
District of/Kitimat-Stikine" in two rows of different fonts. Here is the
official description and story of the logo:
"This Regional District's logo uses a green triangle. When designing our logo, we wanted to get away from the typical old style coat of arms look, with dancing bears and leaping fish - even though we can boast of plenty of each in this region. We wanted to convey a crisp, efficient, more modern look. The triangle has five "incisions". This number is significant because we are (or were at that time) a federation of five incorporated communities and five rural electoral areas (EAs). (We've since temporarily added a sixth EA.) The choice of a green colour was also deliberate as we wanted to keep a reference to our impressive natural landscape. So reading the triangle as a tree or as a snow capped mountain is exactly the response we wanted to create.
The logo was designed by graphic artist Mike Rossiter of Richmond, British Columbia. The logo was adopted around 1995."
