Another Happy Customer!

Another Happy Customer!
I’m sending you this note to let you know that we were very pleased with the interactions we had with The Flag Store and we are thrilled with our new flag.
We wanted to order our flag from a business in Canada and not from a big box store.  We made the right choice in purchasing from The Flag Store.  You and your entire staff  were professional, prompt and communicated efficiently to help us with our order.
Here’s a photo (below) of where our Canadian flag resides — on the shores of Lake Erie.
Thank you again for your product and service.

Feb 15th Is National Flag Day Of Canada

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.

Bridget’s Bunnies

Tuesday, October 15th has been declared Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

To mark this occasion, Bridget’s Bunnies and The City of Barrie will be raising a flag to remember all those babies we never held, the ones we held but didn’t take home, and the ones we took home but who didn’t stay.

Every bit of this flag was made in love. The design was created by Tyler La Fontaine. Together with his wife, Michelle, they work to remember their beautiful baby girl and boy, Elora and Joseph La Fontaine.

The flag itself was generously donated by Cecilia at The Flag Store.
