Description of the flag
The Town's official Flag consists of the shield as contained in the Town's Coat
of Arms (explained below) with two blue waves of the sea below. On April 26,
1999, the Town's Flag was granted and sealed by the Chief Herald of Canada, of
the Canadian Heraldic Authority, and entered into the Public Register of Arms,
Flags and Badges of Canada." - from Wikipedia:
"Sidney is a town located at the northern end of the Saanich Peninsula, on
Vancouver Island in the Canadian province of British Columbia. It is one of the
13 Greater Victoria municipalities. It has a population of approximately 11,300.
Sidney is located just east of Victoria International Airport, and a few
kilometers south of BC Ferries' Swartz Bay Terminal. The town is also the only
Canadian port-of-call in the Washington State Ferry system, with ferries running
from Sidney to the San Juan Islands and Anacortes. Sidney is located along
Highway 17, which bisects the town from north to south. It is generally
considered part of the Victoria metropolitan area. The town west of Highway 17
(also called the Pat Bay Highway) has a mixture of single-family residences and
light industry. Single-family units are also present east of the highway, but
the eastern sector also has many condominium-type buildings, plus most of the
service and retail outlets. The island-studded Haro Strait forms Sidney's
eastern boundary. There is a large boating and marine industry in the area,
ranging from marinas to boatbuilders and marine suppliers." - from Wikipedia:
