Description of the flag

The flag for the City of Guelph, Ontario can be seen at http://mayorsblog.guelph.ca/2008/11/11/rembrance-day-recognizing-service, where it is described as the City of Guelph flag.
Valentin Poposki, 9 July 2011

It is horizontally divided white-green-white, but with the green stripe mostly overlain by a red stripe fimbriated white. Three red crowns are arranged two and one on the white stripes, and a white horse is in the centre on the red stripe. The words GUELPH and CANADA are written in black on either side of the lower crown.

The horse is representative of a horse of Hanover, the German Principality where the name of Guelph (or Gwelf) dated back for centuries. The "ancient" crown is symbolic of Guelph's distinction as Canada's Royal City. Guelph was the family name of the British Royal family. Red and white are the city colours, probably to mirror the official colours of England.

This flag is that of the citizens of Guelph. There is also an official flag for the mayor.
