The unique flag of the Town of Fort Macleod has depictions of a teepee, fort and store in the center which reflects the community’s historical past to being an RCMP outpost as well as an important location for trade and commerce in Southern Alberta. A cloud formation on a light sky blue background represents a bison. On upper left hand corner of the flag is a simplified representation of the municipal coat of arms. On the lower left and right of the flag are two Wild Roses, the official floral emblem of Alberta.
