This municipality was granted a flag, arms and supporters by the Canadian Heraldic Authority on September 1, 1998, according to the Canada Gazette.
Translated from city website:
The flag of Fermont is made of the essential elements found on the shield of the coat of arms, and placed on a banner embellished by an or potent fringe (bordure d'or potencée). This heraldic shape evokes stylized cross beams on which rails are placed, in this case, those of the railroad that brings Fermont's ore to the world. Robert Pichette
