The flag of the City of Moose Jaw is a modified Canadian pale, divided into three vertical sections; the outer two are emerald green and half the width of the inner section, which is golden yellow. In the centre, half the height of the flag, is a naturalistic depiction of the head of a bull moose, in tan with brown details, in three-quarters profile oriented toward the right. The official specifications reverse the moose head on the back of the flag.

Green and gold are the city’s official colours and also the field colours of the provincial flag of Saskatchewan. The overall design recalls the national flag. The moose head represents the city’s namesake, the moose (Alces alces).
