Well, there’s no doubt which town this flag is for. The TOWN OF FORT SMITH. Interesting arrangement of bison… One big bison with two little bison flanked by pairs of pine trees right below it. So they have bison there. And more bison. And more bison. Visit their tourism web site, and you’ll see that the major selling point is…wait for it…bison. In fact if you dig down a little into the site, you’ll find a whole page devoted to bison. I guess it all makes sense, as Wood Buffalo Park is home to the world’s largest herd of free-roaming bison. Although, if they’re free-roaming, I guess there’s really no guarantee they’ll be in Wood Buffalo Park – so I’d call ahead before you make the drive up there.
The rest of the flag is a little bit of a head scratcher. The river I get. But I’m not sure why it runs through a set of disembodied bird wings and into a downward pointing arrow leading to the word “PERSEVERANCE” written in a weird Medievally font.
