In the months leading up to the Invictus Games Toronto 2017, the Official Invictus Games Flag will travel with 150 Flagbearers from coast to coast to bring the spirit of the Games and the power of sport to all Canadians.
The Invictus Games Flag is a physical representation of the unconquerable spirit of competitors, and embodies the hope and spirit of the 550 competitors who will be participating in the 2017 Invictus Games.
The Invictus Games National Flag Tour will start in Victoria on August 16th, and travel as far east as Gander, Newfoundland, before finishing in Toronto on September 22nd as the 2017 Invictus Games kicks-off.
The 37-day cross-Canada journey will visit 22 military bases, 15 Legions and over 50 communities who have been a part of Canada’s rich 150-year history.
Unique to the Invictus Games, the National Flag Tour will depend on YOU – proud Canadians – to carry the Flag across the country by executing a pre-planned route in or near your city!
This is an opportunity for you to tell Canada why the Invictus Games are important to you, or to show your gratitude for those who serve or have served our country! Canadians across the country will discover and become inspired by the compelling stories of strength and resilience from wounded warriors and proud Flagbearers.
