For RESIDENCES, fly the flag all summer through until the November 11 holiday.  Or ... take it down and put it up whenever you like, maybe around our national holidays.  We will pick up your flag after November 11.  If any damage or loss occurs, we encourage you to contact us at so that we can replace or repair as necessary.

For COMMERCIAL locations, your flags will be installed and removed so they are flying around three Canadian holidays - July 1, September 5, and November 11.

The fee is $100 per flag flown. Click on Read More to see where the funds raised have gone.
