Description of the flag

Hines Creek, Alberta (population: 437) began as a fur trade settlement in the mid-1800's and grew into a major commercial center in the Northwestern section of the province. Today this community has benefited from economic activity stemming from oil and gas exploration as well as forestry operations in the area. Hines Creek is the "end of steel" for the Canadian National Railway, hence the railroad track illustrated on the municipal flag.
