Camp flags to presented at Chilliwack city hall

Military regiments and battalions will be presenting flags to Chilliwack for safekeeping in a Tuesday night presentation.

It will be a ceremony Tuesday at city hall infused with tradition and respect.

Local military regiments and battalions will be presenting flags to Chilliwack council in a special presentation.

Representatives of the 39 Combat Engineer Regiment, the Royal Westminster Regiment, and the 39 Service Battalion will be in attendance Oct. 15 at the 7 p.m. council meeting.

Commanding officers of each unit will present their camp flag, entrusting them to the city for safe keeping and display.

The purpose of a camp flag is to identify the location of each unit, and the flags also represent “the respect that each unit has for the City of Chilliwack, and acknowledges their long association with the city,” according to a release.

“We are proud to be home to these units and are honoured to receive their Camp Flags as a symbol of our mutual trust and respect,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz.

There’s more to come.

City officials in turn will present the 39 Combat Engineer Regiment, the Royal Westminster Regiment, and the 39 Service Battalion with the Freedom of the City and parade on Oct. 26. starting at 1 p.m. outside the Chilliwack Museum.
