 Rebellion of 1837-39 in Canada (upper Canada)
Kevin Harrington, president of ACV/CFA, informed me at NAVA 32 that it is a wide-spread mistake that the Upper Canada Reformist flag is all blue, coming from the fact that the flag kept in a museum is ripped and some people wrongly assumed that the lower half of the flag was all blue.
In Upper Canada, at least, it was the Radicals and not the Reformers who were behind the violence in 1837, and they never amounted to more than about a thousand people within a population of about a half-million.
The surviving flag is fragmentary, but is accompanied by a reconstruction, and according to the text alongside, which describes it as the flag of the short-lived 'Republic of Canada', the crescent moon represented the 'hunter's moon', symbol of the many semi-clandestine 'hunters clubs' in the area.
