100 Years Ago: Ad for Flags on Dominion Day

The Intelligencer June 23, 1915 (page 5)

“Loyal Canadians Prepare. Show Your Colors on Dominion Day! Make your City a City of Flags—let no home be too poor to do honor to our Natal Day. If you have not already secured a flag or flag outfit, no better time will be found than TO DAY. In honor of the Canadian Nation, in honor of the valiant deeds of Canadian Arms, in honor of the brave Canadian citizen soldiers who with incentive for national integrity and virtue are engraving our high ideals on the scroll of history with sword and bayonet—hang out our Union Jack.

A $4.00 Flag Outfit presented by the Intelligencer. While the flag alone can be had for $1.10 we strongly recommend the complete outfit at $1.48. ‘A Flag for Every Home!’ Clip the coupon printed on another page of to-day’s issue.”
