The Official Flag of Toronto Designed by Rene DeSantis in 1974

The end of 2020 was certainly a time of turmoil and reflection worldwide and here at home in Toronto. The COVID-19 pandemic made it clear that Torontonians thrive together and that they come together in support of each other and to celebrate their neighbourhoods. The sense of city pride and the need to feel connected was necessary, now more than ever. The Toronto Flag team offered an ad in the Toronto Life magazine, featuring a DIY flag that could be posted in windows, pasted on notebooks, or crafted into a flag to wave. This small gesture to share the pride, unite and encourage a city socially distanced.
