Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island - The City flag is a banner of the city's arms.
Chris Pinette, 2 April 1999

According to the municipal profile at the city website (a 30 page pdf file) the City of Charlottetown was founded in 1995, from an amalgamation of municipalities.

Since the arms were granted to the "old" city, the "new" city is using the arms and flag illegally until they petition the Heralds for the arms.

The City is much older than that. In 1864, Charlottetown hosted the conference between political leaders that ended up forming the Dominion of Canada in 1867, even though Prince Edward Island didn't join Confederation until 1873.

Heraldic Grant

I the Chief Herald of Canada do by these Presents grant and assign to the CITY OF CHARLOTTETOWN the following Arms: Argent on a square Vert joined at each corner with a smaller square Vert a representation of the coronation crown of Queen Charlotte Sophia of England proper.

AND I DO FURTHER grant and assign the following Flag: A banner of the arms the three edges in chief fly and base charged with a bordure compony Vert and Argent;

The shape (and colours) of the crown is specified: the crown of Queen Charlotte, "proper". The drawings show the crown white/"argent" with purple lining. Also note that while the text states that the arms consist of four Green Squares, the banner of arms stretches these squares to rectangles.
