The flag of Manitoba is a variation of the Red Ensign which bears the shield of the provincial coat of arms. The decision to adopt the flag was made after the federal government decided to replace the Canadian Red Ensign with the Maple Leaf flag. The flag of Ontario was adopted under similar circumstances.

The shield contains a bison standing on a rock on a green background, with the Cross of Saint George, a symbol of England, in chief. The bison is a symbolic reminder of the various bison that formerly roamed the province.
