TRCF - The Renewed Canadian Flag

[Canada - TRCF]
by Antonio Martins

I've seen recently Canadian flags with two thin blue stripes between each red stripe and the white center.

I saw this flag in Montreal twice at pro-unity manifestations and a third time as a bumper sticker.

Anybody know what it this flag is?

Possibly a reconcilation flag to incorporate the colours (blue and white) of Quebec with those of Canada (red and white).
Chris Pinette

A lot of people I've asked came up with that same hypothesis. I thought it might also be a country wide French-canadian flag. Or, a political movement. Or, (I don't know why) I think it looks like a navy flag...

I really think it has something to do with Canadian unity, because of the places I've seen it :

  • The night of the referendum on Independance in the "NO" room;
  • The Canadian love-in in Montreal (to convince Quebecers to stay in Canada),
  • and also in Ottawa or Hull in last year's celebration of the Flag Day (the first one ever).

I just was seraching Yahoo! Canada looking for new flaglinks when I came across the Canadian flag with blue fimbration at

It says:

"TRCF for Canadian Unity
Pour l'Uniti Canadienne

Unity Flag recognizing Canada's duality: French and English-speaking people together. French Canada and English Canada.

Le drapeau pour l'unité reconnaissant la dualité canadienne : les francophones et les anglophones ensemble.

Approx. 25% of the border is coloured blue representing the Francophones in Canada.

Environ 25% de la bordure [entre les champs rouge et blanc] est coloriée en bleu, et représente la francophonie au Canada.

The same symbolism as the Union Jack making our Maple Leaf flag even more beautiful without losing our own identity.

Un symbolisme identique à celui de l'Union Jack rend notre drapeau unifolié encore plus beau sans que nous perdions notre identité propre.

Canada is "the Red and the Blue". Our national sport hockey, truly reflects our duality and our common heritage:

Le Canada est "Rouge et Bleu". Notre sport national, le hockey, reflète vraiment notre dualité et notre héritage commun :

Wayne Gretzky / Mario Lemieux.....Bobby Orr / Guy Lafleur.....Gordie Howe / Jean Biliveau.

Among the best in the music industry...Parmi les meilleurs dans l'industrie musicale :

K.D. Lang....Shania Twain / Ciline Dion.........Brian Adams / Roch Voisine.

No. 1 in the world......No. 1 dans le monde: Elvis Stojko / Jacques Villeneuve.

Secondly it also revives the notion of a strong united Canada from "sea to shining sea".

Deuxièmement, ce drapeau fait renaître l'idée d'un Canada fort et uni "de la mer à la mer".

This Unity Flag may one day become Canada's officially renewed Canadian Flag symbolizing "unity and harmony" on our national emblem.

Ce drapeau pour l'Unité pourrait un jour devenir officiellement le drapeau rénové du Canada, symbolisant "l'unité et l'harmonie" sur notre emblème national.

According to the .wri file they have on the homepage (which, I might add contains several interesting newspaper articles about the flag), "TRCF" stands for "The Renewed Canadian Flag."

Hell's Angels

After a recent biker battle in Quebec, there was a TV report on the bikers, including the Hell's Angels. There, clearly blowing in the breeze, was fully extended Hell's Angels' flag - I wonder if it is an international flag, or a Canadian version. It was similar in design to the Canadian flag - 1:2, but with the red-white-red showing a bit more white that usual, maybe 1-3-1 instead of 1-2-1. The reason for this is that the maple leaf was replaced by a large brown winged skull, the emblem of the Hell's Angels. Is this flag known around, or is it a local phenomenon?

A blue/white Canadian flag

[Canadian blue variant]
by Antonio Martins

I once saw a blue and white Canadian flag. It was the same as the current maple leaf, but was colored blue and white instead of red and white. This was in July, 1970, in Dwight Ontario. When I asked a local person why this flag was blue he said that it had been a rejected design trial for the 1965 flag. He also said it was a French-Canadien design. He was English-Canadian and got very upset about it. He said that this irritating French-Canadien person shouldn't be flying it. He was going to take it up with the town council that night. I never saw the flag again. I assumed that the design was French-Canadien preferred because of the blue color instead of red for the English. Kevin McNamara - 19 October 1998
