The flag of the Municipality of East Hants (the status is District) Nova Scotia, is white with the district arms on it. Here is the description I got:
The flag crest [sic] places focus on the three historical industries in
East Hants of forestry (tree on bottom left), farming (wheat on bottom
right) and ship building (top panel) (WD Lawrence, etc.) I believe the sun
over the wheat was meant to highlight our spectacular scenery but I'm not
entirely sure on this one. The waves (blue lines) in the top panel behind
the ship represent our highest tides.
The flag was designed by Neville Glover, who was the Chief Administrative Officer of the Municipality of East Hants at the time. (Year of adoption of the flag is unknown).
Thanks to Amanda Hatfield, Administrative Assistant, for information and photo of the flag.
