The Survivors’ Flag

September 2023 – At a recent Town Hall, CLEBC staff unveiled our Survivors’ Flag and placed our hands around it in solidarity. As stated by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation: “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.”
