National Red Mitten Day in Canada – Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Across the country, National Red Mitten Day is celebrated as a collective expression of Canadian Olympic Pride. If you want to be a part of supporting Canadian athletes who have big Olympic dreams, just put on your red mittens today. Any red mittens will do!

The Hudson’s Bay Company founded National Red Mitten Day in anticipation of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, and since then, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the red mittens has gone directly to supporting our athletes of today, and extending to those of future generations.

Supplying flags and banners for the 2010 Winter Olympics is a major highlight in the more recent years of The Flag Shop’s 40+ year history! We all know what it feels like to cheer on the best of the best Canadian athletes who strive for gold on the world stage, and who represent the pride of all Canadians in achieving athletic excellence!

Through National Red Mitten Day which has raised over $30 million for the Canadian Olympic Foundation since it began our athletes benefit from the best coaching, state-of-the-art equipment, sports medicine, and other resources which give them world-class training opportunities.

Be a part of the tradition of wearing red mittens today. To learn more about Red Mitten Day, and how you can get involved, (or if you need red mittens), please visit:
