Who We Are

The Original Flag Store opened for business in 1965 in the small town of Thornton, Ontario -– just one hour’’s drive north of Toronto. We quickly became known as the company who could make a business, a cottage or an event burst with colour and pride.

In 1965 any individual could walk into our store and ask,
“ “Can you put this on a flag?””
…and our response was almost always -– yes!

Today, 46 years later, the original family still take great pride in offering the same service, the same quality and the same personal guidance to all customers who require custom flags and flagpoles. We also offer many other choices of “soft” advertising for your company, your family name or your location.

We appliqué our flags and all of our flags are MADE IN CANADA! We can also print on different weights and kinds of material to keep your costs at a minimum while keeping your options completely open. Using nylon, polyester, paper or vinyl, we listen to your needs and help you to choose the right medium to make you look good!

We are Canada’’s custom flag manufacturer!

If you require a professional look, in any printed fabric or custom sewn durability, our product will exceed your expectation!

Quality, Service and Value for your Money.

Whether it’s a stock item, an international flag, a custom banner, a flag rental or an installation – we offer you the best choices to maximize your marketing dollar. We understand Canadian pride and the real meaning of ~
