In Their Words : The Story of BC Packers

The first flag flown for BC Packers. This version of the BCP flag was small and used to identify BC Packer fishing boats.

 

A variation of the first flag, this flag was much larger in size and was used to identify the packer boats belonging to BC Packers. Packer boats were ice-filled and picked up salmon from the fishing fleets and brought them to the cannery docks.

 

Introduced in c. 1968 when BC Packers bought out Nelson Bros., a successful independent cannery. To honour Nelson Bros., the orange and white company flag was combined with the BC Packers’ green and white flag to produce the green, white and orange flag, shown here. This version of the flag was small and used to identify BC Packer fishing boats.

 

A variation of the third flag, this flag was much larger in size and was used to identify the packer boats belonging to BC Packers. Packer boats were ice-filled and picked up salmon from the fishing fleets and brought them to the cannery docks.
