The Sifton-Cook Heritage Centre

Come back for our 5th Season

May 21 - October 10, 2016

Flags to be Raised

Flags200Funding is underway to raise a set of flags, which would hang like banners above the Heritage Centre fence which runs along Orr Street.  Keith Oliver's plan shows how the flags would hang at a height dictated by the nearby power lines.  It is suggested that the earliest flag would be what became known as the King's Colours, flown here until 1802.  It is similar to the Union Jack but without the red diagonal Cross of St. Patrick.

You can help raise a flag by contributing to the Flags Up! Campaign.  To find out how and for the latest update click here.
