We now have a new Anglican Church of Canada flag hanging in the church. This donation was made by Alan Sweet. The flag originally hung in St. Giles Anglican Church where it was dedicated in loving memory of Alan's grandparents - John Henry Sweet, Agnes Millar Sweet, Stanley Gordon Milligan and Matilda McLeod Sinclair Milligan.
The Anglican Church of Canada Flag - Explained
The red cross represents St. George and has long been associated with the Church of England. In the 1950s a new design was proposed for the Canadian Anglican Church and the design we now see was later modified by General Synod in 1995. The four green maple leaves represent the four ecclesiastical provinces of the church in Canada.
Thank you to Alan Sweet for this meaningful donation to our church!
