The current flag of the Town of Aurora is white with town logo on it.
Here is the description and meaning:
The previous flag is white St. Andrew's Cross on blue background, and the town
crest on it. It was adopted on 18.05.1988. Here is the description and
meaning of the crest:
- The name Aurora displayed in a traditional font
- Imagery representative of the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine
- The fields of yesterday and today
- The sun rising over Aurora - symbolic of the dawn of a new day
- This logo is indicative of the historical roots valued by Aurorans and
borrows its imagery from the Town Crest
- While the logo suggests a traditional small town feel through its
imagery and font treatment, it definitely has a contemporary flare
- It suggests the old and the new have come together to create a new
- This logo is intended to elicit feelings of comfort, strength and
intimacy - some of Aurora's most valued traits
- It suggests that Aurora is proud of its history and small town charm
- But it also embraces a contemporary attitude with a unique vision for
the future It was adopted in 2005, but some recent photos show that the
previous flag is still on display, maybe for more official use.
Aurora's traditional crest consists of the
sun in the background shining over some mountains (representing the hills
surrounding Aurora) with rows of furrows dug into the earth in the
foreground by a symbolized Fleury plow (the Fleury plow, manufactured
where Bacon Basketware is now located on Wellington Street West, was the
first plow to be mass produced in Canada). It is surrounded by branches
of maple leaves and the slogan "The Sun is my Witness" in Latin (Sol Meus Testis).
