Design

The flag of the Town of Souris has a blue field with the town emblem, nearly the full height of the flag, in the centre. The emblem comprises a shield with squared upper corners and a rounded base. It is edged in white and shows a stylized scene: to the left a red-roofed white lighthouse and adjacent building on a grassy cliff-top in green over bluffs of brown, a blue sea with white waves, and a blue sky with three flying seagulls and two clouds, all in white. All elements are outlined in black. The clouds are inscribed INC. and 1910, and curving below and attached to the shield is a white ribbon inscribed SOURIS, P.E.I., all in black sans-serif letters.

Symbolism

The emblem depicts the Souris East Lighthouse, built in 1880 and long a symbol of the town and area. It stands 14.3 m above the cliff on Knight Point overlooking the Town of Souris, which was incorporated in 1910.
