The flag of the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay has unequal
horizontal stripes of white, green, and light blue, in widths of 2:1:2. The town
seal appears in the upper left of the white stripe, nearly the full height of the
stripe, and one diameter away from the hoist. It has a central disc surrounded
by a white band, inscribed TOWN OF HAPPY VALLEY · GOOSE BAY,
running from the 7 to 5 o’clock positions and with a dash at the base, all in
black sans-serif letters. The disc portrays a valley with a stream in blue flowing
from a lake and white mountains in the distance to a bay in the foreground,
through a landscape in green with two evergreen trees at the left in black, all
with black details under a light blue sky. In the top centre is the head and neck
of a Canada goose (Branta canadensis) in black and white, looking to the left.
Flanking it are two small Canada geese in black and white, flying toward the
right. Below is a white ribbon with swallow-tailed ends, inscribed LABRADOR
in black sans-serif letters. The Pantone colours of the lower stripes are
green 256 U and blue 2975 U.
