Lac du Bonnet is a town located along the shores of the Winnipeg River
approximately 115 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.
The lake (which is just a wide portion of the Winnipeg River) after which the town takes its name was named by the explorer/fur trader Pierre Gaultier La Verendrye circa 1730s.
The flag is a Green-White-Green triband. In the centre lies a geometric shape housing a silhouette of a building, trees, and waves, as well as a float plane (float places operate out of Lac du Bonnet and this town was the location of Manitoba's first airmail flight). Under the silhouette is the town's name.
