The flag of the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews has a white saltire (X-shaped cross) on a blue field. The width of each bar is one-fourth the height of the flag. Surmounting the centre is a white disc, over three-fourths the height of the flag. On it is a naturalistic adult bison (Bison bison, or buffalo) in blue with dark blue and black details, half the height of the flag, facing the hoist.

The saltire, or St. Andrew’s cross, is a direct reference to the name of the rural municipality, St. Andrews. Depicted in white on blue, it is the flag of Scotland. The bison, a magnificent animal that once roamed in the thousands on the nearby plains, alludes to St. Andrews as a community of Manitoba, which displays a similar bison prominently on its provincial flag, coat of arms, and logo.

In 2005 St. Andrews celebrated its 125th anniversary. One of the projects of the Anniversary Committee was to have a proper coat of arms and flag designed and registered. The municipality then applied to the Canadian Heraldic Authority for a grant of a coat of arms, flag, and badge.
