The flag of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, was designed by Renato De Santis, a 21-year-old George Brown College
George Brown College
student.[1] It won in a 1974 competition held by the Old City of Toronto
Toronto
Flag
Flag
Design Committee.[2] The former flag consisted of the city crest on a white and blue background and was considered to be overly simplistic by then mayor William Dennison.[2][1] When several former cities in the Toronto
Toronto
area amalgamated, the new Toronto
Toronto
City Council launched another competition for new designs from the public in 1997, but the council did not approve any of the public submissions.[2] During the review process, De Santis suggested minor modifications to the original flag, which beat out a design recommended by then councillor Brad Duguid
Brad Duguid
in a November 1999 vote to become the current flag.[2] The flag displays the twin towers of the Toronto
Toronto
City Hall on a blue background, with the red maple leaf of the flag of Canada
Canada
at its base, representing the Council Chamber at the base of the towers.[2] The shape of the space above and between the towers suggests the letter 'T', the city's initial. A variation of this flag is used by Toronto
Toronto
Fire Services fireboat William Lyon Mackenzie. The marine ensign consists of the main city flag in the upper canton with a life preserver on two tone blue background.
