The 52nd Field Ambulance (officially designated "52ieme Ambulance de Campagne") is a reserve unit of the Canadian Armed Forces stationed in Sherbrooke (Quebec). It was formerly known as the "52nd Medical Company" (officially: "52e compagnie medicale") from 1978 to an unspecified date and as the 8th medical company (official name in English only) between 1954 and 1978. The flags included are based on photographs published on their website.

The unit's flag, like many other of its kind, has a field divided diagonally. In this particular case, the colours are burgundy (hoist) and green (fly). The flag is defaced near the upper hoist with the badge of the Canadian Armed Forces Medical Service (and not the unit's own) and near the lower fly with a golden logo composed of the number "52" (in black) surrounded by four arrows (in green) pointing outward.

The car flag of the commander of the 52nd Field Ambulance of the Canadian Armed Forces is a burgee diagonally divided burgundy (hoist) and green (fly) with the golden letters "CMDT 52e Amb c" (on 2 lines) near the relative center. Burgundy comes from the field of the Canadian Armed Force's health service's insignia (which according to their website is meant to represent the "sanguine humour" of pre-modern medicine) and green might relate to the infantry.

The letters become more evident when one knows that they refer to the the commander's position as written in French: "Commandant, 52ieme Ambulance de Campagne".
