"Kings County is located in central Nova Scotia
on the shore of the Bay of Fundy with its northeastern part also forming the
western shore of the Minas Basin. The part of the county residing in the
Annapolis Valley comprises the agricultural heartland of the province and
boasts over 600 farms; the area is famous for its fruit crops, primarily
apples. As with most coastal parts of the Maritimes, Kings County's shoreline
was home to a productive shipbuilding industry during the 1800s. Wolfville
houses the highly ranked Acadia University. Cape Blomidon and the North
Mountain preside over the Annapolis Valley, whereas the South Mountain and
interior forests to the southern part of the county support a variety of lakes
and recreational cottaging areas.
The Municipality of the County of Kings has area of 2,122 sq.km. and population of 60,000."
The flag of the Kings county has three horizontal stripes of blue-white-green and county coat of arms in the middle of the flag, as can be seen on a photo here: http://www.novanewsnow.com/article-337964-Kingston-AGM-packs-em-in.html. Click for larger image.
