South of the Fraser

Surrey, Delta, White Rock and Langleys

A large tattered flag over Surrey

Just waiting for a metaphor to wrap itself in, the large flag over Flag Mitsibushi in North Surrey is often in tatters.

It's on 104 Avenue, just east of 152 Street. Hard to miss, really.

 One big flag - a landmark visible for miles

The flagpole comes from Expo 86. It's claim to fame was it was the largest freestanding flagpole in the world. It's 86 meters tall. The flag is 24 by 12 meters. For many years it was Flag Chevrolet, but that was one of the dealerships that was cut during GM's restructuring. It's now Flag Mitsubishi.

 A PR embarrassment - the flag is ripped

Oddly enough, there doesn't appear to be anything about the flag on Flag Mitsubishi's website.

Because it's so big it's something of a landmark. It's easily visible to anyone heading towards Guildford from Whalley along 104th Avenue.

As a result everyone sees it when it inevitably starts to tear.


Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
