The Original Flag Store Celebrates it’s 15 Year Anniversary!
The Original Flag Store Celebrates it’s 15 Year Anniversary! Staff enjoyed a nice lunch and gifts while exchanging flags stories over the years. (In the lovely pink sweater and blue scarf is Beth Burke the founder of Flags Unlimited in 1965, which became The Original Flag Store in 1998). Behind Beth is Cecilia Burke, President & CEO of The Orignal Flag Store and beside Cecilia is Paul Burke her brother who is also a co-founder. We are now into our third generation of flag making. Have you seen our youtube video on Flag Making Tradition? If not you can catch it on on Web Site under our “In The News” section.
Our flag now hangs proudly in their classroom in Apeldoorn, Holland.
War veteran, Ben lectures at the Primary school “De Diamant” about WWII and the role of the Canadians, by the Liberation of the Netherlands and Europe, the price that was paid for the freedom we enjoy today! In this photo Ben poses with the children who are holding up a Canadian Flag made by The Original Flag Store, a very proud feeling.
