Description of the flag

The flag of the Town of Kensington, Prince Edward Island, consists of three vertical stripes red-white-red, with the white stripe much wider. In the white stripe the town coat of arms is positioned. Photo of the flag courtesy of Maria Hickey, Town of Kensington.

The middle stripe is a square, in proper Canadian fashion, but the overall ratio of ~3:5 makes the side stripes too thin. I’m hoping the official design is 1:2.

Kensington is a town located 15 kilometres northeast of Summerside in Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada; As of 2001, the population was 1,385. The area was first known as Five Lanes End, as roads from five different communities converged at the point. It was renamed Barrett's Cross in 1824 after an early settler that established an inn in the area. In 1862, the town was renamed after Kensington Palace in London and it became a town after the Prince Edward Island Railway's mainline from Charlottetown to Summerside curved through the community.

Kensington today is a service centre for the surrounding farming areas. - Source: Wikipedia: Kensington, Prince Edward Island.
