Carleton Place Come Sign The Canada 150 Commemorative Flag!


Sign a Flag???


This year, July 1st., marks the 150 Birthday of Canada. To mark this important time in our history we are creating a special Commemorative Unity Signature Flag at Mitchell’s Independent, in Carleton Place.

Why? Where?

You are invited to come and sign or print your name with a red sharpie on a white flag, inside the outline of the maple leaf and two bars, thus creating a truly Canadian Unity Signature Flag. There is a possibility of this flag or a second flag, that may be created on Parliament Hill on Canada Day, presented to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. Several emails have went back and forth to Rideau Hall and Canadian Heritage, since April 18th. when the request was sent in.

The flag signing will occur from 10:00 am. until 7:00 pm., Mon. June 26th. to Fri. June 30th. Donations will be collected for the Salvation Army. Volunteers are needed to oversee the flag signing for three hour shifts. If you can volunteer for at least one shift, please call or email, Gary Strike at 613-257-8120, or email,
