22

Daily Flag 22 on Monday, December 22 at 52 Leuty by Derin & Grant. 20”x32” Original design, transfer print and appliqué on cotton with satin accents. Daily Flag 22 takes its cue from the Great Lake Ontario on which we live, and features traditional nautical colours of blue, white and red. Twenty-two waves, represented by the zig-zag pattern at the centre of this flag, suggest overwhelming emotions accentuated by bold red stripes warning of danger. But all is not lost, the anchor, lovingly hand-sewn onto this piece by one of the flagmaker’s fathers, assure us that safety is nearby, and peace is at hand, as spelled out in the Ship to Shore message by the international code flags at the bottom. Life is perilous for many people, but there are many others to help and offer safe haven. SOLD $150
