Description of the flag

A new flag has been adopted by the community of Gabriola Island, British Columbia, Canada, as its flag. Gabriola is only the second Canadian Gulf Island, after Salt Spring Island, to create and adopt an island flag.

The flag was designed by Gabriola resident Steve Earle following a design competition that was sponsored by the Gabriola Historical and Museum Society in May, 2017. Earle's design was one of more than 50 submissions, and was chosen by islanders who voted for this design as their choice.

The blue shape is meant to depict the Malaspina Rock Galleries that were first discovered in 1792 by Spanish explorers Dionisio Galiano and Cayetano Valdez, and named for Spanish explorer Alessandro Malaspina, Spain's most prominent exporter and navigator. Since then Malaspina Galleries have been an iconic symbol for Gabriola.

The black bird is a raven, a bird that holds special significance for the original inhabitants of Gabriola, the Snuneymuxw First Nations.
