The flag of the Town of Sussex, New Brunswick:
"Town flag is simply a blue background, yellow band at top and bottom with a colour representation of our Town crest in the middle. The flag was only developed maybe 20 years ago in response to so many requests for use of a Town flag. In the crest, which we've had basically since not long after incorporation in 1904, the symbols represent (plow) agriculture, (wheel) industry and (wings) progress." Information and images and photos thanks to Judy L. H. Milner, Town Office.
