Description of the flag

The Village of Warburg, Alberta (population: 560) is located about 83 km SW of Edmonton in the County of Leduc. The agricultural and oilfield service sectors of the local economy are represented on the flag by a bushel of wheat and oil pumping equipment. Also on the municipal flag are two flowers, the Alberta Wildrose. In the center of the municipal flag is a white colored crest with the name of the town in the same dark shade of green as the remaining background of the flag.

According to

Warburg was originally named Varburg after the Swedish birthplace of a long-time resident Albin Benson, now deceased. The name was later changed to accommodate English pronunciation.
