The Flag

Norfolk County FlagOn October 24, 2006 Norfolk County Council approved the adoption of a Norfolk County Flag. Norfolk County staff, in collaboration with members of the Norfolk Heritage Committee, have worked diligently together to develop the colours and final outcome of the new flag. It has now been produced and is available.

The flag depicts the dogwood flower on a dark green background which symbolizes the following:

  • The dark green background represents the lush agriculture prevalent across Norfolk County
  • The Dogwood is a Carolinian species native to Norfolk
  • The four bracts (petal-like white leaves) surrounding the dogwood flower buds are symbolic of the four former municipalities (Norfolk, Delhi, Simcoe and Nanticoke ) that comprise the new Norfolk County .
