Flag Raising Protocol

The Municipality recognizes that flags are an important symbol. At our Offices at 151 King Street in Chester, we permanently fly the Municipal flag, Provincial flag, and the Canadian flag. During special visits or commemorations, we will also occasionally fly other flags on the three official flagpoles.

We are pleased to announce that we have installed a fourth flagpole at the Municipal Office in Chester. This flagpole is reserved for special-purpose flags that represent an organization or community (for example, the Pan-African flag or the Pride flag) . They can be flown for up to two weeks at the request of an organization. To read the eligibility requirements and view the application, use the links on the right.
