Constructed of multi-piece bunting, the one sided flag measures approximately 87cm by 178cm. The Red Ensign proudly features the Union Jack to its Canton and the 1921 to 1957 Canadian Coat of Arms on the Fly. An earlier flag, it features multiple pieces in both the Union jack and Fly. The flag also features its original hemp halyard, though any markings on the heading have been lost to time. Regretfully the flag has seen better days, though it continues to display well when folded or in static display cases.
