Can anyone possibly explain to me why a Canadian Flag would not be flying proudly outside of the local Legion Hall, on Remembrance Day of all days, while Veterans and others were "celebrating" the National Holiday inside?
Seriously, am I missing something here? I did not take the picture until 4:30 this morning but I was at the Legion (working) for most of the early part of my night. I was there picking people up as early as 6:30pm and there was no Canadian Flag on that pole.
Do they take it down before dark or is this some sort of tradition I am unaware of? I would really like to know.
Also I believe a local company on 3rd Avenue South could have shown better taste by actually flying a Canadian Flag instead of this mockery.
As I was aimlessly driving around in the early hours of the morning it was quite difficult to actually find a Canadian Flag along Mayor Magrath Drive or even 3rd Avenue. The XXXXXX company's flag stood out amongst the very few I was able to spot, during the day I am sure they are more visible.
The worst kept Canadian Flag I found was by the XXXXXX motel around 11th Avenue and Mayor Magrath Drive on the West side of the street. The flag is dirty, ripped, and in terrible condition. It looks like a rotting plastic bag wrapped around a rusty tree branch and is definitely not in working order. I was pretty disappointed.
This link suggested in my comment section refers to Government material about everything you would ever need to know about the Canadian Flag (yes I am always capitalizing flag after Canadian whether it is grammatically incorrect or not)
