Hey all!
I have a question for yas.....has anyone seen a flag that is a Canadian/American flag combined. So one flag with half of each? I don't mean an avatar I mean a real flag. If so, anyone know where they are sold?
Thanks!

That would would be hard to find I would imagine. The US is VERY particular about its flag and how it is represented. Why not just fly both? My mom is Canadian and my dad is American and while I was growing up we always had both proudly flying in the front yard.

Actually I have. I kick myself now for not buying it a few years ago when Darcy lived in Calgary. It was a car flag. I will let you know if I find it.

Very true! Probably would be classified as flag desecration.

A long time VJ member (Sharon) has one that she bought in Montreal. So these kind of flags do exist. They aren't "official" flags but cool nonetheless.

Darcy just said you can get them at truck stops. He said they should have at Flying J's. If you can't find it, let me know.

I have about half a dozen of them. Not available in the US, but can be found in some dollar stores in Canada in the summer time before our national holidays in July. Sharon and Zen found a bunch in Montreal, and then about a year later my Mum found some in a dollar store in Ajax I think it was.

They're not full size flags tho, just the size mentioned above, like you can put on your car window. They're novelty flags, and go against all flag flying etiquette of not just the US but also Canada and any other country who has a flag. But :P we can wave them if we want. ;)

Proper flag etiquette is that the flag of the country where you are (in my case for the moment would be US) is the largest, and/or on the highest pole. Flags of other countries should be smaller, or and/or on a shorter pole, or on the same pole as host country, but below. Flags should be raised at dawn, and lowered at dusk, and *never* flown during bad weather. This goes for state/provincial flags, as well as country flags.

Flags should be retired and replaced when they start to show wear or get torn. Flags should also not be flown upside down, this is the signal that you've been attacked and invaded. So unless you've been attacked and invaded, your flag should always be upright. For those unfamiliar, (like the colour guard in Atlanta :P ) the Canadian maple leaf should be flown all points UP.

If you Must hang a Canadian flag vertically or use it as a curtain on a window, it should be displayed thusly:

We actually don't want it for outdoors. If were were to fly any flag or flags they would indeed be the proper ones and done with much respect. I agree...fly both.

Darcy just said you can get them at truck stops. He said they should have at Flying J's. If you can't find it, let me know.

Jen


Thanks Darcy! I'll look next time I stop at one. Hmmm well that isn't likely anytime soon but I will keep my eyes open nonetheless. I just might keep you in mind Jen if I don't have much luck here. Thanks!

I'll have to keep looking then. Sounds like a Dollar store or a place I would least expect to find it is where it just may be. Thanks for the flag info.

I have seen an image of such a flag, on this forum. Quite disturbing actually, but that's just my opinion. Equally as disturbing was what I saw in downtown Vancouver once, while I was waiting to start the Sun Run (The 2nd largest 10K running event in North America.) It was just after a friendly fire incident in Afganistan where an American pilot accidently dropped live ammunition on a training exercise, killing 4 Canadian soldiers. All of the flags in front of this major plaza, or hotel, or whatever it was were at half mast, but the US flag was at full mast.

Something similar is a flag pin that is available at some souvenir and government stores in Canada - I haven't seen them here - that has the US and the Canadian flags flying together, one to the right and one to the left, that you wear as a lapel pin. I got one in Canada before I left and another from the Canadian Consulate in Atlanta. You can probably find those on line. We wear ours when appropriate. We also have small hand held Canadian flags and US flags in planters on our front porch.
