White flag in ~1:2 ratio with "wolfville" in brown unconnected casual cursive
lowercase letters centred on it and centred above the lettering a stylized "w"
made from a dark yellowish green reversed checkmark, a red apostrophe-like
squiggle, and a teal slash - the whole boxed in approx. half the height and half
the width of the available area.

This flag has been used by Wolfville, NS, since about 2013, but in spite
of several attempts, I haven't been able to find out much about it. Apparently
it was agreed upon by the town council, but no one in the office can tell me who
designed it or why.

A basic logo on a plain blue field. The flag flies at the town office. The apple tree is because Wolfville is one of the principal
towns in the Annapolis Valley, a major fruit growing area; the open book presumably
represents Acadia University, the major business and employer in town; and the anchor the harbour,
to be the world's smallest harbour - although it only functions about 2-3 hours a day, as the tidal range here
is about 13 metres, and most of the time it is red mud. The red wavy band might stand for the Mud Creek (most
mud here is red) - the town used to be called Mud Creek. The wolf's head on the
crest is likely canting to the name.
