A basic logo on a bedsheet. I don't know a lot about it, except that it flies at the town hall, and from the pole of the former town manager. Basically, though, the apple tree is because Wolfville is one of the principal towns in the Annapolis Valley, a major fruit growing area; the open book presumably represents Acadia University, the major business and employer in town; and the anchor the harbour (often claimed to be the world's smallest harbour - although it only functions about 2-3 hours a day, as the tidal range here is about 13 metres, and most of the time it is red mud. The red wavy band might stand for the Mud Creek (most mud here is red) - the town used to be called Mud Creek. All that is speculation, however, some more so than others.
