About the Vancouver Island flag

A Blue Ensign defaced with the great seal of the Colony of Vancouver Island. Used informally today. This unofficial flag was designed in the 1980s to retroactively represent the colony (1849–1866). In 1865 permission was given from the Crown to colonies to place their badges on the fly of the Blue Ensign and as such could be argued by vexillologists that this could be an official flag.
