Do you have a Canadian flag up at your house?

Surprisingly enough, with dh's military background we don't. There are a lot of 'respect' rules that I would have to learn, so I've never brought it up. We've only been in our place under a year, prior to that we couldn't have living in an apartment. Maybe one day down the road, but for now we don't.

I think people who do, in generally pretty respectful... but for the love of all things Canucky if your flag is tattered, replace it. If you leave it up overnight, put a light on it, and if you are putting one up, use a pole, not a bush or staple it to a window or the side of your house...it's not that hard!

We did at our old house, it was a country house with a large yard so there was lots of room for a pole with a little rock garden around it and spot lights for it.

Now that we live in a little town house we don't have the room for one. If we move back to a larger spot we'll get one again.

We don't, but my in-laws have 3 of them displayed around their yard.

I want one for the backyard. We back on to a really busy road and people would see it Not a single person along our side of the street does. My parents have one, on a pole off the deck.

No, for some reason I think it seems American to put up a flag.
