President of The Flag Shop,
I came across your website since your business is located in Canada, and the Confederate Battle Flag is still indexed as being available in both fabric flags and decal stickers.
Though when I tried to place an order I was appalled when I was redirected to a notice that your company has banned the flag permanently.
In your “Press Release” you obviously used this to ban ANY flag you assume would offend historically ignorant zombies including “the flag of apartheid-era South Africa”.
Yet you still sell the flags of the old Soviet Union, Maoist China, North Korea, Castro’s Cuba, North Vietnam, Sierra Leone… not to mention almost every mass murdering tin pot banana republic in Africa and Asia. So, your state that the Confederate Battle Flag (which was never the actual flag of the Confederate States of America) is “a symbol for hate and racism”. This is pathetic considering your unwavering support of the genocide of FAR OVER A HUNDRED MILLION people. You also have NO problem selling the so called “post-apartheid-era” African National Congress flag. This brutal Marxist terrorist regime that committed unquestionable ethnic cleansing of white founding settlers by burning them alive with gasoline and rubber tires.
Many national flags you sell today are *STILL* symbols of repressed Communist hell holes where human rights violations and genocide are government policy. I am not going to try and educate you on the true facts surrounding the War of Northern Aggression, nor do you actually care.
You are just another putz who jumped on the politically correct bandwagon, fearing a loss in revenue from sales of Rainbow Flags, Stars of David, and mass-extermination paraphernalia from multicult sheeple with a credit card. The fact you used the banning of the Stars and Bars to advertise some ungodly pink “Anti-Bullying” flag is a double standard insanity. I guess mass murder, terror, torture and rape is not bullying to you. Yet, somehow Southern Pride is.
You, madam, make me sick!

The Flag Shop halts sales of Confederate Battle Flag
Vancouver, BC (June 24, 2015) – The Flag Shop announces that, effective Monday June 22, all thirteen locations of The Flag Shop have removed the Confederate Flag (or Battle Flag of North Virginia) from the stock product line.
“The Flag Shop offers all of the current flags of the US States as well as a number of historical flags,” says Susan Braverman, President of The Flag Shop, “but when a historical US flag is increasingly used by racist groups as a symbol of hate, it makes me sick to my stomach. I knew it was time for us to remove the Confederate Flag from our stores.”
The Flag Shop has added the Confederate flag to its list of flags that will not be sold to the public. This list includes the flags of World War II Germany, the flag of Rhodesia, and the flag of apartheid-era South Africa. Museums, the film industry, and others with a genuine historical need may still contact us and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
|The Flag Shop does not condone or allow racism or racist behaviour in any way, shape or form and we are doing what we can to support positive messages of dignity, equality, diversity and safety amongst all Canadians.
