It might not be the land of milk and honey but it is a land that boasts its beauty from the far north to the Rocky Mountains to the ocean where the sun sets and to the border to the south.
We bought the British Columbia flag in honour of the 150th birthday.
This flag is laced with memories for me. My mom loved the British Columbia flag.
She thought it far prettier than the Canadian flag so that is the one that was flown on the farm while I was growing up.
The flag has meaning of course. . the Union Jack at the top refers to our British past. The King Edward crown in the center of the Union Jack refers to the Canadian Royal Family .. who live in Britain.
Then. . below that, the blue and white stripes signify the western most province of Canada which touches the Pacific Ocean and is divided on the east side by the Rocky Mountains.
Then of course, the sun setting at the bottom is the setting sun into the ocean. .
I'm wondering how many British Columbian's knew all this trivia. . no matter. . .
I know that if you have been to our beautiful province. . . or if you live here. . .
you have enjoyed its beauty.
