Adopted in 1969, the flag of Saskatchewan is divided horizontally into two halves. The upper green half represents the forest areas of the north while the lower golden half represents the prairie grain fields of the southern regions.

The Armorial Bearings are placed in the upper left near the mast while a Western Red Lily, the floral emblem of Saskatchewan, spans the two coloured halves of the flag on the right. The red Royal Lion on the gold background of the shield represents Saskatchewan's links to England while the 3 sheaves of grain on the green background represent Saskatchewan's agricultural contribution to Canada and to the world.
