What is the Progress Pride Flag?

 

Red=Life

Orange=Healing

Yellow=New Ideas/Sunlight

Green=Prosperity/Nature

Blue=Serenity/Harmony

Violet=Spirit

Black/Brown=People of Color

White/Blue/Pink=Trans Community

 

Designed in 2018 by Graphic designer Daniel Quasar, Quasar added a five-colored chevron to the classic Rainbow Flag to place a greater emphasis on “inclusion and progression.” Quasar’s Progress Pride Flag added five arrow-shaped lines to the six-colored Rainbow Flag, which is widely recognized as the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ+) community.

The flag includes black and brown stripes to represent marginalized LGBTQ+ communities of color, along with the colors pink, light blue and white, which are used on the Transgender Pride Flag.

Feb 15th is Flag Day

At  noon on February 15, 1965, Canada’s red and white maple leaf flag was raised for the very first time on Parliament Hill. A year later on the same day the National Flag Day Of Canada was declared.

Celebrating its 55th anniversary this year, the national flag is a symbol that unites all Canadians and reflects the common values we hold so dear — equality, diversity and inclusion.

Winter Flag Care

caflag

To keep your Canadian flag looking  bright and beautiful take it down from time to time. If you are expecting an ice storm or a winter blizzard and your flag will not be seen, take it down to avoid any damage to the flag.  By taking your flag down in cold or poor weather it will help the flag to last longer.

From time to time inspect your flag and check it for fraying or loose ends, small holes or rips and tears. We are available to perform flag repairs for a low cost.

Always inspect your flag to be sure it is not catching on any items such as trees or roof lines as that will further accelerate the deterioration of the flag.

Flags can be hand washed in cold water if necessary and hung on the pole damp to quickly dry.  Wrinkled nylon flags can be ironed at the lowest/delicate setting .
