Starting spring 2021, residents had the opportunity to take part in a memorial banner program. The banners feature their loved one’s name and other information on a remembrance-themed design.
The banners will be displayed along Esquimalt Road and near CFB Esquimalt in fall, 2021. The program was initiated by council in 2019 then was paused due to COVID-19. This year, on April 9, 2021--Vimy Ridge Day--people interested in taking part began ordering their banner.
Banner sales have ended for this year. They will be displayed this fall with the date to be announced.
The banners contain the name of deceased service personnel and the conflict they served in. All banners have the same poppy motif.
Due to the number of available spaces, there were a limited number of banners available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The banners are produced locally and the price is set on a cost-recovery basis of $100.
