The diagonal band and upper area of blue represent the Madawaska and the
Ottawa rivers, which are key features of the local landscape and have played
such a large role in the history of settlement and the development of the local
economy. The green crescents are one of the main elements found in the coat of
arms of the Chief of the Clan McNab and honour the township's Scottish founder.
The thistle flower refers to Braeside and with the two elements joined, the
union of the two former municipalities is permanently commemorated."
