Description of the flag

The wavy blue & white lines at the bottom represent Lake Ontario; the large blue trapezoids at the left (mast) edge represent the Scarborough Bluffs; the red maple leaf signifies Canada.
Alan Gryfe, 22 October 1999

The flag design was initiated in 1968 and was formally accepted by Council in June of 1969. The design boldly incorporates the outline of the Scarborough Bluffs which rise to a height of 300 feet above Lake Ontario, featuring  the Maple Leaf symbolizing the Dominion of Canada in the centre. This flag will always be flown on the flag poles of the Scarborough Civic Centre which houses the Municipal Offices. The Borough of Scarborough has a population of 400,000 and is the largest in area of the six municipalities comprising Metropolitan Toronto.
