Current GOAL

Travel bugs seem to regularly disappear from urban caches and at caching events.  Please drop this item in rural or Premium Member Only caches.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts—then the chain and tag won't tangle with other items.  Otherwise, take this bug everywhere—no permission is needed to leave the US. 

About This Item


The current Flag of Ontario was enacted as the official flag of the Canadian province of Ontario by the Flag Act on May 21, 1965. The flag is a defaced Red Ensign, with the Union Flag in the canton and the Ontario shield of arms in the fly. Before 1965, the Canadian Red Ensign had flown outside the legislature and government buildings. That year, the federal government, after a long and acrimonious debate, decided to replace the Red Ensign with the current flag of Canada, the Maple Leaf Flag. This decision was especially unpopular among rural Ontarians, who were the political base of Premier John Robarts' Ontario Progressive Conservatives. Robarts thus proposed that Ontario would have its own flag and that it would be a Red Ensign like the previous Canadian flag. The only difference was that the Canadian coat of arms would be replaced by the Ontario one. While Robarts insisted that he supported the new national flag, he felt the Ensign was an important symbol that reflected Ontario's British heritage and the sacrifices made by Canadian troops under the Red Ensign. The coat of arms appearing on the Ontario's flag consists of three golden maple leaves, representing Canada, on a green background. On a chief is the Cross of St. George, the name saint of King George III, in allegiance to whom the Loyalists first came to the land that would form the province.

Picked this up at the 82 Lorenzo West cache, a few mile east of Lubbock, TX. We are planing a trip to Houston in a couple of weeks, and we will try to find a cache for it down there. Maybe one of the Houston cachers can put it on a plane at IAH and get it to Canada.
