This Flag, designed by Fred Slater, was presented to the City of Estevan by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #60 on the occasion of the official opening of the new City Hall on March 1, 1973.
The lower part of the flag (black) represents the coal and oil of which there is an abundance in this area and which plays a vital part in our economy; the upper part (gold) represents the wheat which also provides a valuable contribution to our economy.
Superimposed in the centre of the flag is the City's crest, designed by a former City Engineer. The building in the lower quarter is a Coal Tipple, the left quarter contains an Oil Derrick, the flash in the upper quarter represents electricity and the flame in the fourth quarter represents natural gas. The crossed wheat dividing the circle into quarters, along with the aforementioned industries, give rise to Estevan being aptly named "The Power Centre" as indeed all types of energy are represented in this crest.
The Red Maple Leaf in the top left hand corner signifies pride and loyalty
to this great country of ours - CANADA.
