O Cottage

Fly that flag! But, you know, correctly

The List

Do you need to apologize to the Canadian flag? You might. We probably do. Every cottage flag-flyer has made a faux pas or two. So, for Canada’s 150th b’day, brush up on your flag-tiquette. “It’s basically just common sense,” says Rick Archbold, the author of A Flag for Canada, a biography of the Maple Leaf.

1 Respect the flag. No talking while you raise it. “A moment of silence is never a bad thing in cottage country,” says Archbold. “You’re also supposed to take off your hat. But I’m not sure how much it happens.”

About Cottage Life

Going North! Cottage Life toasts Canada’s 150th birthday, with an exclusive interview with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on what the cottage means to him, Canuck-inspired party recipes (beer and back bacon poutine, anyone?), and essential flag etiquette. The issue also includes workshop intel every Canadian should have, renowned Canadian writers and photographers sharing their views on our country from the cottage, a peek into our national official cottage, Harrington Lake, and why now is the time to plant a tree at the lake. PLUS, meet an American who, after a lifetime cottaging in Canada, has a thing or two to teach us about summers at the lake. Don’t miss this one-stop guide to celebrating Canada at the cottage.
