​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​There are almost 100 flag poles located at City of Brampton facilities including transit buildings, fire stations, recreation centres, and libraries. The City of Brampton’s facilities fly the National Flag of Canada, the Ontario Provincial Flag, and the City of Brampton flag where three flag poles are available. Facilities that are limited to a single flag pole fly the National Flag of Canada.

The United Nations flag is flown at both Cenotaphs and the Region of Peel flag is flown at the Civic Centre. Brampton Fire Prevention displays the Brampton Fire Dog safety banner flag at the Fire Life Safety Building.

All flags at City facilities are flown, displayed and disposed of in a consistent and appropriate manner and are positioned in Order of Precedence in accordance with the National Flag of Canada etiquette.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
