The flag was selected as part of a competition for the first town community flag in Scotland.

The flag shows River Carron, with Dunipace in north bank and Denny in south. The colours reflect those of the former civic arms with thr white particularly marking the important treaties signed in this place.  The River Carron, that separates and unites Denny & Dunipace, is represented by the wavy  lines.

The castle symbolises the name of the River Carron as possibly originating from ‘Caer Avon’ meaning ‘ River of Forts’, the two towers recalling the settlements of Denny & Dunipace. The eleven blue pointed star represents the eleven mills in the mid eighteenth century.
