I’m probably going to get some guff for this one, because Canadians seem to be oddly defensive about their flags. Supplying construcitve criticism about their beloved maple leaf gets about as far as suggesting limits on gun show sales in Texas. Anyway, the flag of St. Thomas, Ontario, is a bad one and it deserves some analysis. First of all, the lime green shade is…different. And not really in a good way. In fact what appears to be a wagon wheel may in fact be a slice of lime. Three highly stylized maple leaves look more like fig leaves to me, so you have to wonder what’s the Canadian government is covering up in St. Thomas. And I’m not sure, but I think that’s a primitive switchblade in the upper righthand corner. Either a switchblade or two boards nailed together shoddily.
