Every year, a select group of cadets gets to proudly bear the flags on parade, both at the squadron and at regional events. They carry the Canadian Flag and our Squadron Banner, while guarded by three armed escorts. At most events, the escorts will carry drill rifles, a symbol of the protection and value we give our flags.
The flag party attends a range of events, including quite a few Christmas Parades both in Peterborough and the surrounding area. They also participate in a few dinners at the Wing throughout the year, where they carry the flags into and out of the mess hall, showing the Wing the dedication we have to our Veterans.
Flag Party is open to all cadets, and upon joining you may take up either the flag or the rifle. Practice is every other Wednesday from 6:00pm until 7:30pm, and instruction is provided to any cadet who's interested.
