The Town of Castor is located in the County of Paintearth #18, in east- central Alberta. It is 160 km east of Red Deer, 245 km southeast of Edmonton, and 290 km northeast of Calgary.
The beaver in is Castor canadensis

The name is probably French in origin - it would fit in with lots of other
Metis French names in central Alberta - Lac La Biche, Grande Prairie, Grande
Cache, Beaumont. It is certainly a canting arms on the flag.
