I think in order for this to be called an authentic Canadian flag, it should be made in Canada. I personally think it is made in China from Canadian prisoners accused of espionage LOL

In USA basically every other home will have the flag on their porch or something.

Always wondered why it's not as popular in Canada

And that's a good thing. Uncritical nationalism is cancer. Maybe if they were less "patriotic," the Iraq War would have never happened.

I don't know if everyone here remembers the "red scare" after 9/11 happened, and how very different it was from the years preceding where nationalism was waning.
Banal nationalism refers to the everyday representations of the nation which build a shared sense of national belonging amongst humans, a sense of tribalism though national identity. . The term is derived from English academic, Michael Billig's 1995 book of the same name and is intended to be understood critically. The concept has been highly influential, particularly within the discipline of political geography, with continued academic interest since its publication in the 1990s.[1] Today the term is used primarily in academic discussion of identity formation and geopolitics.

Examples of banal nationalism include the use of flags in everyday contexts, sporting events, national songs, symbols on money,[2] popular expressions and turns of phrase, patriotic clubs, the use of implied togetherness in the national press, for example, the use of terms such as the prime minister, the weather, our team, and divisions into "domestic" and "international" news. Many of these symbols are most effective because of their constant repetition, and almost subliminal nature. Banal nationalism is often created via state institutions such as schools.

This is a very narrow minded comment.
