Description of the flag

The Village:
"Forestburg is a village located in east-central Alberta, Canada. The rich farmland of the area was first settled in 1905. Soon after the first of many "gopher hole" mines, homesteaders were soon coal mining on the banks of the Battle River in 1907. The site was surveyed in 1919 after the Canadian Northern Railway arrived in 1916, and Forestburg was incorporated into a village. Today Forestburg's economy is based on agriculture, coal mining, oil and gas activity, and power generation. It has 895 residents." - from Wikipedia:,_Alberta
