Coat of Arms
With the Town of Flamborough, including Waterdown and the Waterdown BIA, now part of the greater city of Hamilton, the Waterdown-East Flamborough Heritage Society initiated an endeavour to create a Coat of Arms and Flamborough Flag for the extended Flamborough communities. After an almost three-year-long consultation and design process, Canada’s Heraldic Authority (part of the Governor General of Canada office), presented the new Coat of Arms and Flag to the local community. The presentation was made on April 29th, 2011, at the Carlisle Golf Club by the retired Bishop of Niagara, the Right Reverend D. Ralph Spence.
The Coat of Arms is primarily the shield at the centre of the overall symbol. The crest at the top, the supporters at the sides and motto and base all follow very strict rules of heraldic design.
The Flamborough Flag
The Flamborough Flag includes the primary elements from the shield itself (the actual coat of arms).
