Winnipeg’s Canada Day Living Flag has been selected as the image for an official Canada Post stamp. More than 3,000 Winnipeggers who stood shoulder to shoulder in red and white t-shirts to form Canada’s largest living flag.

The stamp will be part of the Canadian Pride series to be issued on January 14, 2013. It will be part of five Permanent domestic rate stamps that draws attention to the common — and uncommon — places the Canadian flag appears. An official launch of the stamp will be planned early next year.
