It is a unusual place for The Flag Store to be in this week, as we have decided not to go to the Toronto Boat show this year with a booth. Although we will terribly miss our customers ( that we consider good friends and recognize from year to year, even remembering your boat ). We found that as in many business’s today, our Online Sales and website has also expanded. Ten days for this show was a long and many times very cold experience ( including booth set-up and take down) and it was decided to pull out of the show. We will still be at the Toronto Spring Cottage Show March 22-25th at the International Centre on Dixon Rd. See you there and please, call us if you want a flag 1-800-375-7271. Mention that you read this post and your shipping is half price ( so $7.00). Our website online sales , in order to shop online is www.theflagstore.ca . You will always be able to get our Handsewn and Appliqued flags there, stitched in 200 Denier Heavy duty nylon with four rows of stitching, made right in Barrie. Drop into our Thornton store too, open 7 days a week 9-5pm. Thanks so much!

Gilbert Baker, the designer of the iconic rainbow flag, has died.
In 1978, Baker sewed a multicoloured flag that became the symbol of the LGBT community across the world.
Baker, 65, died Thursday in his sleep, said Cleve Jones, an AIDS activist and Baker’s longtime friend. He died in New York City, the medical examiner’s office there said.
A vigil in Baker’s memory was planned Friday evening under the rainbow flag in San Francisco’s United Nations Plaza. The banner could be seen flying half-staff from the balcony of Mayor Ed Lee.
“Gilbert was a trailblazer for LGBT rights, a powerful artist and a true friend to all who knew him. Our thoughts are with his friends and family. He will be missed,” Lee said in a statement.
