The Waterdown-East Flamborough Heritage Society initiated the process to create a Coat of Arms as well as a flag for the communities of Flamborough.
The society established a committee of interested groups and individuals, representing all the areas of Flamborough, to create the symbols and slogan for the Heraldic Coat of Arms.
The Coat of Arms is essentially the shield, the other elements around the shield are optional, however, they need to follow the very strict guidelines of heraldic design.
The Arms: A white shield with a green pine tree between two blue wavy triangles, rising from the base with their points converging toward the top of the shield.
Crest: A representation of the “Cobblestone Bridge” at Webster’s Falls – a major landmark in the Flamborough region.
Motto: “UNITED WE THRIVE” – developed by students from Greenville Public School and Rehoboth Christian School, as well as Kyle Menegaldo.
Supporters: On the left side of the shield is a horse and on the right a great blue heron. Both are wearing a medallion around their necks, depicting a blue arrowhead. They stand on a platform representing the Niagara Escarpment, charged with three red trilliums rising from a bed of green violets.
Flag: The flag is a re-interpretation of the main symbols of the coat of arms.
