Town of Gander

from the Gander website

The Town of Gander is located in central Newfoundland and is a major service centre for the area. The community is situated on the Trans Canada Highway with access to deep water ports in just 30 minutes. Gander is the home of Gander International Airport with daily domestic and international flights serving the province, the region and the world.

From its beginnings as a strategic location during the war, Gander International Airport was a staging area for the Royal Air Force Ferry Command. Gander's importance during the war continued to be equally as important during peace time- the construction of the Town of Gander began in the early 50's and the airport town is now a bustling community.


From the download page at the City of Gander website:

The Town of Gander flag was designed in 1984 and reflects the proportions of the Canadian flag (2x1), with blue vertical bars framing a white square containing the Town of Gander crest and date of incorporation. A stylized bird or aircraft appears in gold at the top of each blue bar. The flag’s predominant colours, blue and white, represent the water, sky and clouds. The gold represents sunlight and, as in the provincial flag, confidence in ourselves.

The flag represents the Town of Gander at official municipal events and locations and its use is encouraged throughout the municipality. Where the Town of Gander flag is flown or displayed in combination with the provincial and national flags, it appears on the viewer’s right, with the national flag in the centre. When flown or displayed in combination with other flags or standards, or when it must share a staff with another flag, appropriate precedence must be observed.

The 50th Anniversary flag was created for official use during 2008. It is modelled after the standard Town flag, with the anniversary logo replacing the Town crest in the centre section.
