    Detailed Canada Red Ensign Flag Product Description

    The Canadian Red Ensign or Red Ensign Canadien was the informal flag of Canada until 1965. The original Canadian Ensign had the arms of the four founding provinces on its shield. In the late 19th and early 20th century, the creation of the flag was at the whims of flag manufacturers and they would often add oak leaves, crowns and wreaths as they desired. There was no standard design for the Red Ensign until the early 1920s. In 1921, the Government of Canada asked King George V to order a new coat of arms for Canada an the College of Arms designed one in response. The new shield was displayed on the Red Ensign and a new Red Ensign was born in 1922. 

    Perfect for the Yachting or Boating enthusiast or as a teaching tool for historical reenactments. For other sizes please reach out via the contact us link.

    I called the customer service

    I called the customer service & I spoke to a very nice & understanding lady & had to tell her that they sent the wrong flag that I order & she was so gracious & understanding that she sent me the flag I wanted & told me to keep the other flag that they sent & all I can say is I wish all companies would be half as gracious & half understanding like this independent Canadian made company!!! I will always buy from them from now on when it comes to buying a great quality made flag!!! From Sam DP
