Victory Loan Flags were designed to reward those communities that made significant contributions to the Victory Bond campaigns. In 1919 a new flag was commissioned for that year's campaign and it was decided to incorporate the heraldic arms of Prince of Wales, the future Edward the VIII, into the flag's design.
The Prince of Wales visited Canada in September 1919 and raised the flag at Parliament on Labour Day weekend when he allegedly made the remark " I hope every City and District will win my flag" quoted on this poster.
Albert County won the Prince of Wales flag along with the cannon in the Victory Loans drive of 1919. The Prince of wales flag flew over the court house in Hopewell Cape, which is why the corners are frayed on the flag. The flag is now located in the Albert County Remembers Exhibit.
