The ensigns are exclusively marine flags, and tne.Dnlon Jack alone is the flag that British subjects should display on shore. Canadians are per- haps the most reckless of peoples in displaying flags regardless of their purpose, hfstorj or meaning It is to be hoped that the increasing multi- tudes pf Canadians will cease to be indifferent to the proper use of flags, and will gne the matter, which ought to mean much to us, the attention It deserves.
