Municipal History

The Village of Nanton was incorporated by Order in Council on June 22nd, 1903.  The Town of Nanton was similarly incorporated on August 9th, 1907.  As a local government, Nanton will celebrate its 120th anniversary in 2023.  In 1983, the Town, in conjunction with the family of Sir Augustus Nanton, created a coat of arms and flag by Bylaw for the first time.  The Town is currently working on developing an acceptable version of this for registration with the Canadian Heraldic Authority for the 120th anniversary.
