The history of Daysland began when Edgerton Day, in 1904, purchased 12
townships (276,480 acres) of the “Kentucky Blue Grass Region of the West”, from
the CPR for $750,000. The land included the present day sites of Daysland,
Strome, and Killam. Mr. Day was the first mayor of the Village of Daysland
(1905) and the Town of Daysland (1907). Daysland’s major industry continues to
be providing services to the progressive farmers of Flagstaff County.
The current population (2016 Statistics) of Daysland is 824, which is a 2.1% increase from the 2011 Statistics number of 807.
The Walking Trail Committee make sure the Crocus Trail around town is in prime condition and they are always doing improvements to the trail including laying recycled rubber mats on the walking path, which are great to walk on.

Also on the flag is the Wild Rose, provincial floral emblem of Alberta, a cow’s head and grain elevator.
