Qualicum Beach care home looking for a flag

Eagle Park is asking the public to design the facility a flag.

The residents and family council of the Eagle Park Residential Care Facility in Qualicum Beach is looking for it’s own flag so they are asking the public to design one.

Activities supervisor Kimberly Young said they wanted to raise a town flag in their newly renovated courtyard garden but were disappointed to discover there are no Qualicum Beach flags available.

The contest is open to anyone, the only guidelines are that the design must be on standard 8.5×11-inch paper, contain an eagle and the words “Eagle Park” and use no more than four colours.

The winner will receive $100 cash and the bragging rights to the flag that will fly proudly over the facility indefinitely.

Send submissions, attention Kimberly Young, to the facility at 777 Jones St., Qualicum Beach, V9K 2L1, fax 250-947-8221 or drop off in person by April 15. The winner will be revealed at the May 28 opening of the new garden area.
