The Flag

Flag is a green/white/green pale, with a very wide white center. Municipal arms are on the white center.
Dave Fowler, 20 February 2022

The arms, designed in 1986 by heraldist André Genest, from Montreal, replaced the arms originally designed in 1957 by the Canadian College of Arms of Montreal.
The arms are "Quarterly, 1. and 3. Argent semy of forget-me-not azure leaved and slipped vert botonny gules, 2. Azure a wheat sheaf or, 4. Azure three acorns or, superimposed by a fess gules charged with a wheel argent.

The forget-me-nots recall that Warwick was awarded the title of "Flowered Village" for four years in a row. The wheat sheaf connects the pioneer work of the early colonists and that of present-day's farmers. The acorns evoke the Bois-Francs region and its resources for sylviculture.
The red fess represents a knight's belt, suggesting the continuity of human adventure along history. The wheel represents progress of ingenious people who developed industrial infrastructure.

Red evokes charity and justice. Argent stands for victory, purity and beauty, here representing the sober victory of industrial man over respected nature. Or evokes justice, faith, force and constancy, symbolizing people's connections with ancestral values. Blue symbolizes knowledge, loyalty and clarity; associated with argent, blue evokes the evolution of a community heading to a measured progress, respecting fundamental values.
