Former Flag

North Sydney (now part of Cape Breton Regional Municipality) had a civic flag, designed by one-time alderman James C. Lovelace, in 1974. In proportions of 1:2 it places the city’s arms in the centre of a white bar running diagonally from upper left to lower right on a blue field. The design represents four right triangles, blue signifying the “true-blue” of the Loyalist founders and white their honesty of purpose. The triangles combine to form two squares divided diagonally, signifying rectitude. The arms bear symbols representing the steel and fishing industries. The flag might be considered a modified Canadian pale design.
