From the Minden website:
Formally known as "The Corporation of the Township of Minden Hills."
Minden, located 45 minutes north of Lindsay on Highway #35, is the county seat for the municipalities of Haliburton County.
The community is 138 years old. The early settlers were drawn here by the vast timber resources of the Highlands. The Gull River, which now flows quietly through the Village of Minden, once rang with the shouts of lumberjacks as they floated massive white pine and other timber to the mills to the south.
As the timber resources were depleted, the early settlers turned to farming. Since the end of World War II the growth of the area as a popular destination for visitors has helped to sustain the community.
Concerning the municipal flag:
