Description of the flag

The municipality of Olds (9,184 inhabitants in 2016; 1,493 ha) is located 90 km north of Calgary.

Mayor Judy Dahl unveiled the Town of Olds’ new flag at council’s priorities and policies meeting last Monday [23 January 2012]. The flag shows the new logo, which was designed by the Edmonton firm McRobbie Optamedia. The idea for a new logo came out of a rebranding exercise the town undertook last spring, which was Phase I of the Promoting Olds project.

According to a handout provided by Dahl, the “O” shape represents the relationship between the town and the community, as well as future and fearlessness. The blue, yellow and green colour scheme portrays the community’s energy and vibrancy, in addition to its various facets. “The yellow that flows into the blue indicates the geographic location. The shades of yellow pay tribute to the agriculture history,” said Dahl. “The shades of blue reflect technology and innovation, while the shades of green recognize the significance of the environment.”
