Prince Albert

Prince Albert is the 3rd largest City in Saskatchewan. Located in the broad valley of the North Saskatchewan River near the geographical center of the province where the agricultural prairie of the south and the rich forest belt of the north meet. Much of Prince Albert is built on the sloping south bank of the North Saskatchewan River while the north bank provides a spectacular view of mixed forest, typical of northern Saskatchewan.

Prince Albert functions as a service, retail and distribution centre for northern Saskatchewan's resource industries - mining, forestry and agriculture. It is anticipated that this function will continually be enhanced by increased northern resource development. A well developed highway system links Prince Albert with surrounding areas. The City is also the focal point for Northern Saskatchewan's railway network.

The flag of the City of Prince Albert is a modified Canadian pale, divided vertically into three panels: a slightly larger yellow middle panel and two equally-sized outer green panels. In the centre is a stylized tree, nearly the full height of the flag, composed of four connected upright isosceles triangles in green, placed one, over two, over one. The gap between the central two triangles is golden yellow and forms an inverted triangle the same shape and size as the green triangles.

Green and gold are the city’s official colours. Green represents the forests of the area and the gold represents agriculture. The four triangles symbolize the four major industries in Prince Albert: fur, fish, forestry, and farming. The stylized tree is for the many parks and recreational lands of Prince Albert. The tree also symbolizes an arrow pointing northward, and represents all the roads that lead north, to and from Prince Albert. The city is known as the “Gateway to the North”—it is the second-most northerly city in Saskatchewan and a major service, retail, resource, and transportation centre for northern communities. The symbol also forms an arrowhead, representing Prince Albert’s original inhabitants.

Declared the “Jubilee Flag”, the flag was originally created for the city’s 75th anniversary in 1979. It was adopted in 1980 by the city council as the city’s official flag.
