CITY OF CALGARY

DESCRIPTION

This is the winning entry by Donna Buie of Cochrane of a competition organised by the St. Andrew-Caledonian Society of Calgary. It is now an official symbol of the City of Calgary. The official unveiling was 3 August 2003 on Prince’s Island during the Heritage Day Opening Ceremonies.

Red is associated with many of Calgary’s teams, the Calgary Stampede and its Stampede Showband. (The St. Andrew-Caledonian Society website says it represents the North West Mounted Police).
Calgary was founded on the banks of the Bow and Elbow rivers which are represented by blue.
Yellow symbolizes the prairie wheatfields to the east and grey, the Rocky Mountains to the west.
Black is for the gas and oil industry, and
White represents Calgary’s pride in the white stetson and the White Hatter Awards.
