dewline: (sad news)
It's a habit they established with the swastika itself, after all.

So why wouldn't their would-be heirs try to pervert the flags their enemies fought under? That report of the "Proud Boys" disrupting the indigenous ceremony at that statue in Halifax was a clue, going by the flags *they* carried:

I am remembering there's a superhero created by Scott Chantler called the Red Ensign for the True Patriot anthology comic now being carried with new stories by Chapterhouse comics. Before he officially attached his name and design to that copyright inevitability, a few others played with similar thoughts over the decades. I can't imagine he'll be any more thrilled than the Royal Canadian Legion's membership...and the latter are not thrilled at all by this attempt at grand theft symbology.
