    Chris,

    This looks like a Canadian Victory Bond Pennant. It appears that it would be from 1944, which was the 7th time the Canadian Government reached out to the people for money.

    Where did the flag come from? Family?

    It is an interesting piece. We have flags similar to this one in our museum, but not like this exact one.

    Thank you for the information , yes it is a family item , my family owned a lumber yard for many years and was among some flags I found in the office . I might consider trading it if you have any interest in it . Thanks again for your information .
    Cheers Chris

    Chris,

    Thanks for the information. That makes sense. During both world wars, when a company contributed more than 25% of its quota to the Canadian Government, it was given one of these pennants. Im assuming the family Lumber Yard did such a thing to get the flag.

    Regions (Counties, Municipalites, Towns) also could contribute, but they got rectangular flags, with the same logos stitched on the "fly" of the flags.

    I recently saw a WWI, Prince of Wales flag at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. That would most likely be for a town that went 25% over their raised quota.

    What might you be wanting to trade the flag for? What else do you collect?

    Thanks again

    I collect German WWI and II , Canadian with a special interest in Cape Breton Highlanders or 185th . Also some combat knives and modern camouflage . I would consider this to be a fairly rare item , and would like to get a good trade for it . I wouldn't be as interested in trading it ,if it wasn't going to a museum , where people could see it . If you'd like to make any offers you can personal message me , and I can give you my e-mail address . Also of interest to you might be the fact that the office for the lumberyard was located in a former Victorian Train station , that my family bought and moved in the 20's . And my family still owns it .
    Cheers Chris
