P.E.I. Still Exists, Right?

I know I haven’t been there for a while, but I’m pretty sure Prince Edward Island isn’t A) now it’s own sovereign nation separate from Canada or B) a part of New Brunswick and/or adopted the N.B. flag.

Then why on Earth for the past two weeks has Canada House, the Canadian embassy in Trafalgar Square, been sporting two New Brunswick flags and no P.E.I. flag?

I walked by weekend before last and stopped in my tracks thinking something didn’t look quite right. In the place of P.E.I.’s flag was a bright new New Brunswick flag. However, a few flags down was the old faded New Brunswick flag. No ‘Oiland’ flag to be seen. Now I’ll never be accused of being overtly pro-P.E.I. but c’mon. This is the embassy, surely someone noticed that?

Apparently not. I walked by again this past weekend and the flag situation was exactly the same.

Apologies for the crappy snap, I was in a rush. But you can see see there’s no change from the first photo. Harumph! Maybe someone should tap them on the shoulder and let them know. Perhaps I’ll leave a post-it note on the doors next time I’m by.

One thought on “P.E.I. Still Exists, Right?”

  1. Funnily enough I was looking at the flags outside the embassy a few weeks ago and trying to identify the different flags. I am now trying to remember if the PEI one was there then…
