Description of the flag

From Wikipedia:,_Ontario:

"Skerryvore is a small community in Ontario, Canada located on the shores of Georgian Bay just south of the community of Pointe-au-Baril Station. It is part of the township of The Archipelago. There are approximately 125 cottages or homes located within the community, which was named after a (long since demolished) vacation hotel located in the area. The hotel was itself named after the Skerryvore lighthouse in Scotland."
