Quality difference in flags perplexing

I can’t help but think that a lot of visitors to Victoria must be a bit puzzled as to why we have one of the best and worst examples of Canadian flags on display at two of our city’s busiest intersections.

On the Bank of Nova Scotia building at the northeast corner of Yates and Douglas streets, there is a very crisp, attractive-looking maple leaf flag flying smartly in the wind.

By contrast, the ripped and tattered Canadian flag at the top of the Scott Building at the southeast corner of Hillside Avenue and Douglas looks as if it must also be used for mopping floors.
