Description of the flag
The flag of the District of Saanich, British Columbia, is white with
district coat of arms on it. Here is coat of arms description:
Saanich Coat of Arms, the green on the shield represents the fertile soil of
the area. The pheasant, the oak tree, and the farmer with his plough remind
us that hunting, logging, and farming were an important part of the early
life in the Municipality. The swan, which forms the crest, seems ready to
fly to Swan Lake, a lovely preserve of nature surrounded by housing. The
Municipal Hall is near Swan Lake. Not long ago, the black-tailed deer and
the cougar ran wild in the area. As "supporters" of the shield, they
symbolize the strength of the community.
The blue camas in the swan's
beak and garlanding the deer and cougar is a native flower. It is a reminder
of the beauty of our natural and native Indian heritage. The wreath on the
helmet, and the "mantling" flowing from it, are in the traditional colours
of Saanich - green and gold. Saanich has a motto in Latin. You can see it on
the ribbon below the shield. "Populo Serviendo" means "Serving the People."
