Guarding The Red Ensign [#90]  - Click for previous

Taken in front of Mather's Arch in Fort Erie, this photograph displays a statue of an unnamed soldier from World War I. This monument specifically commemorates a series of battles from Ypres to Mons. During these battles, Canadian soldiers carried with them the infamous Red Ensign. This Canadian symbol was the first allied flag to fly proudly and victoriously over the vanquished German Empire in Maldingen. As this photoblog entry depicts this once recognizable icon: the Red Ensign is fading away, along with its history.
