  • The leaf and triangles are a bridge over the blue line which represents the Gull River.
  • The colours are those of the Haliburton tartan, which the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce commissioned the Loomcrafters of Gagetown, New Brunswick, to design in 1963. Haliburton is one of the few counties in Canada to have a tartan.
  • The green represents the forest for the centre, it now represents Nature’s Place.
  • The blue is for lakes; white for snow and the trillium; red and gold for fall colours; brown for the earth and fur-bearing animals that the early pioneers of Haliburton County harvested.
