The flag of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality is very beautiful in its simplicity - it is basically the green shield with the Cape Breton Sloop in gold and white (the sails) surrounded by the double border connecting the eight maple leafs. The number of maple leafs refers to the eight municipal units that were amalgamated on August 1, 1995, to become the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. The Cape Breton Sloop is taken from the original Great Seal of Cape Breton in the early 1800's when Cape Breton was a British Colony. Like the flag of Canada, the flag for the Regional Municipality is readily identifiable because it is so unique.
