Description of the flag

York Region does not have an official flag per se, although the logo is sometimes affixed on a flag or banner against a white background.

A variant of the flag features the logo in inverted colors as seen here (third flag from left to right): https://dynamicmedia.zuza.com/zz/m/original_/3/1/31476b2d-a4e0-467c-b0f1-b15ea9763b4a/N-flagshalfstaff-sk___Gallery.jpg
