The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation recently unveiled the Survivors Flag. Haudenosaunee representation includes our Tree of Peace. Purchase of merchandise items that feature the Survivor’s Flag design will be available soon.
The Survivors’ Flag is an expression of remembrance, meant to honour residential school Survivors and all the lives and communities impacted by the residential school system in Canada. Each element depicted on the flag was carefully selected by Survivors from across Canada, who were consulted in the flag’s creation.
The Survivors’ flag was created by Survivors as their expression of remembrance to share with the broader public. The Survivors who consulted in the flag’s creation, and their communities, will receive a flag to raise for National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It is also the hope for many of the contributing Survivors that the flag will be incorporated at public events and to make remembrance a habitual part of practice at gatherings.
