Canadian Flags and Pins
As your Member of Parliament, Charlie's office is pleased to provide constituents with Canadian flags and pins upon request. Two sizes of flags are available: large flagpost nylon flags (90cm x 180cm) and small desktop nylon flags (30cm x 15cm) with a plastic stand.
We will do our best to accommodate your request; however, please note that we have a limited number of pins and flags available. We are generally unable to provide one individual with a high volume of pins or flags and we can only provide them to constituents living in the riding.
