Description of the flag

The Town of Pincher Creek, Alberta (population: 3,666) is located near the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in the Southwest corner of this province. The story of how this town got its name goes something like this in 1868 a pair of pinchers (tools used for shoeing horses) were found left behind in a creek by a traveling group of American gold prospectors from the State of Montana. The municipal flag illustrates a single pincher tool which forms the letter "C" in the word "creek". Also on the municipal flag is a simplified illustration of one of the many large windmills located near the Town. The windmill and dark green background on the flag serves to reinforce this community's commitment to environmentalism and use of wind energy for generating renewable power and "clean" electricity.
