On the Civil Aviation Ensign:
Canada Gazette 7 Jan 1922.
Air Board Notice regarding use of ensign.
Hereby notice is given that for purposes connected with the conduct of Civil Aviation the ensign used to distinguish property and premises owned or occupied by the Air Board is as hereunder described.
Light blue, in the dexter canton the Union and in the centre of the fly of the flag on a red shield edged with white, an albatross, white, with wings extended over three maple leaves conjoined on one stem, proper. J.A. Wilson, Secretary Air Board, 30 Dec 1921.
This ensign was probably discontinued later in 1922 when the Air Board was
absorbed into the Department of National Defence.
