Description of the flag

Saturna Island is the southernmost of the Gulf Islands with a permanent population of about 350. The economy is based on tourism and agriculture (chiefly vineyards and sheep). They adopted a flag echoing the Spanish discovery of the island (named for the Spanish naval schooner Santa Saturnina) with a yellow cross on a red field bearing a badge in the upper quadrant of the fly. The attached photos show the flag flying from the Saturna Island Heritage Centre in the Fog Horn Building at East Point and a detail of the badge. Which can be seen as based on the Spanish Arms with local symbolism added (a domestic sheep, orca, wild goat, eagle – albeit heraldic rather than proper – and wine tankard) with two trees as supporters. The flags are produce on island generally with a hand painted badge, although I am told that there is one with an appliqué and embroidered badge for the use of the island’s cutter.
