Flags of Remembrance

Flags of Remembrance pays tribute to the men and women of our Armed Forces in a visually stunning display of patriotism. Every year, Canadian flags are erected along major roadways in participating communities, representing the 116,000 Canadian soldiers lost in armed conflict from the Boer War to the present, as well as the 12,000 soldiers Missing in Action. Each flag is accompanied by a plaque recognizing and honouring individual veterans. The flags and plaques are erected in October, and come down after Remembrance Day in November.

This annual event also serves as Veterans Voices of Canada’s primary fundraiser. All monies raised through the Flags of Remembrance is used to fulfill the mandate of the organization: interviewing veterans, transcribing interviews, burning and disseminating DVDs and helping local organizations plan and manage their Flags of Remembrance celebrations. In locations where Veterans Voices has teamed up with a local non-profit organization, local funds raised are shared evenly between Veterans Voices of Canada and that organization.

To sponsor a honour plaque and flag, contact us at info@vetvoicecan.org.
