I've been looking for years for a Canadian Flag of quality and I have found one from http://www.spectramagic.com in Montreal. They don't speak English very well, but they have a superb mis-made Canadian Flag. I'ts kind of weird, for I've had a routine made up way before I received the flag. I start by asking the audience which country has the best hockey team in the world.....And to honour our Olympic Gold Hockey Team, I'm going to make a Canadian flag in their honour. I use a Genii tube, play a few bars of "O Canada on the harmonica, and end up with a flag minus the maple leaf. I blame it on only playing a few bars of O Canada. And then I give the audience a little history about Canada's flag before the maple leaf was really a British Merchant Marine flag with a Canadian Crest, and since it's kind of British I'll use a Harry Potter sorting hat the make the flag.
When I listen to the sorting hat , it tells me to play all of God Save the Queen! I stuff in the flag, plunk it onto a child's head and proceed to play God Save the Queen. Now we end up with a reverse Canadian flag. This is not going to work. We need something truly Canadian. I take out a miniature hockey stick and a toque( really a weird-looking triple change bag from Viking Magic.) I have the kids sing O Canada while waving the stick over the bag. I finally produce a full, correct flag and then as an anti -climax ,I produce three strings of mini flags of the world which stretch out to about 36 feet.
I have only performed this effect once, but I had the whole audience of kids standing and saluting while they sang our national anthem.It is really compact and plays big!

I didn't know that commercially-made Canadian mis-made flag sets existed.

I had my own sets custom made many years ago (I made 3 sets, one for me, two for friends). I've talked about this on other threads, and have used my set in hundreds of shows.

P.S. Your link doesn't seem to work. Is there a typo? (Then again, I just realized this thread is almost 4 years old!)

This appears to be a dead link. Also a search on Google does not turn up anything.

Be remembered for performing what looks like MAGIC, not skill.

You're right about the link not working, but it seems Google let you down rather badly. Spectram Magic / Magie Spectrale is at the same place as always:

http://www.spectram.com/

They seem to have several Canadian flag silks. The large mismade flag (they have a small) is said to have come from P&A:
