Flag Collection

    Provincial Flag of Ontario

    1965 - ?

    This was one of three flags that were presented to the troop in August of 1975 in Algonquin Park, Ontario during a week long campout. It was given with the challenge for the troop to begin a flag collection with the five flags now in its possession. Such a collection would be used for display to make the troop stand out at camporees and such as well as for a learning tool for Scouts. The red flag with its Miniature British Union Jack in the upper left corner and Ontario Coat of Arms in the centre became the way Scouts would check to see that they were not flying the Union Jack upside down. This was a common insult in Canada as older British descendants would be constantly dismayed as their flag was frequently seen flying upside down.
