Confederate Flag surprisingly popular in Canada.

Be it at their Vancouver, Ottawa or Dieppe, N.B., locations, the Flag Shop always had a Canadian market for the “Confederate Battle Flag.”

According to Susan Braverman, the Vancouver-based president of the franchise, the flag suggested a brand of “rebelliousness” that appealed largely to teenagers.

In 2013, Hamilton, Ont.’s Hillbilly Heaven restaurant faced a barrage of criticism for hanging a Confederate battle flag over its front door.

Owner Cameron Bailey argued that he was just trying to find an iconic southern symbol to advertise his barbeque-laden menu, although the standard has since been taken down.
