Oh Canada

I saw this piece of Canadian First Nations Art on Facebook and thought to myself, “Hmmmm, I love it and I also know a woman who has a flag manufacturing business. I should get them together.” I didn’t hear a thing about it after that and, today, I was tagged in a post on FB announcing that the flag is being produced. I am so pleased. . . what a wonderful age we live in where it’s so simple to network people who do excellent work.

Here’s what the artist said:

Gila Kasla-Greetings,

It has been a long time coming…but I would like to announce that my rendition of the Canadian Flag is finally going to be produced into an actual flag that can be hung and flown. I have been working with The Flag Shop based in Vancouver and they will be producing the design on a flag that measures 27″ x 54″. The flag will be screen printed on 200 denier nylon. It will be finished with rope and toggle in the sleeve, which is the standard way flags are finished in Canada.

These flags will be available at the beginning of March through their website and also through their 13 stores across Canada (Vancouver and 12 others). They offer shipping all over the world. These flags will be sold for $79.95 and I am posting this to get an idea of who would be interested in ordering a flag. If you or someone you know is interested in purchasing a flag, would you please send me a private message? Email info@curtiswilson.ca

Gila Kasla-Thank you

If you know someone who orders flags for civic functions, please have them consider this one. Let’s get some publicity going for this project, too.

  1. Just wondering if any of the money from this flag is funding anything to do with First Nations, I mean, due to the unfortunate history of colonized Canada and the indigenous peoples… taken out of context this flag could even be offensive…

    • As far as I know, the artist and the manufacturer are working together and both will profit as is the usual case in selling art work. The artist is a First Nations man.
