The City of Vaughan flag was raised for the first time at a ceremony on May 2, 1988 after a contest organized by Vaughan's Industrial Advisory Board. Designed by then 15-year old Vaughan student Michael Vite, the flag features a white field and four blue stripes representing the communities of Kleinburg, Maple, Thornhill and Woodbridge. The four strips are joined at the centre with the symbol of Canada, the red maple leaf.Phil Nelson, 20 November 2004

The city was settled in 1792, incorporated as a township in 1850. In 1971, the new regional government of York Region was established, acquiring policing and welfare services from the communities it served; simultaneously, the township merged with the Village of Woodbridge to form the Town of Vaughan. In 1991, it officially changed its legal status to City of Vaughan.
