Description of the flag

Green flag with a local badge on the fly and the lettering "Town of Fort Smith" in black serif capitals across the bottom. This badge is coat-of-arms-like and can be blazoned as "argent, a wavy pale between two bison in chief each between two spruce all proper, over all and issuant from a base sable" something here I cannot blazon "a vol gules; wreath azure, vert and argent; as crest the bison of the arms."

Fort Smith, with a population of 2441 (as of 1996), was formerly called by the traditional name of Thebacha (meaning "beside the rapids"), is located at 6000'N lat. and 11153'W long., precisely on the NWT-Alberta border line. Local languages are Chipewyan, Cree and English, and the community belongs to the electoral district of Thebacha and to the land claim area of Treaty 8.
