Flags

TOGETHER WE WILL DO THIS / ¡JUNTOS LOS HAREMOS!

This is the 4th year we have been supporting #OurClub as a movement. Each of the previous three seasons we have done a display with flags to celebrate the heritage of our players and coaches. The 1st year we had one flag for each province/country/region, then the 2nd year we had two (one held and one waved), and last year we had four flags waving.

This year we decided to take a different approach. Using our abundance of BC, City of Vancouver flags, and the flags representing our squad, we chose to make an overhead of sewn together flags. It was 13 flags (roughly 65') wide one 23 flags (roughly 69') high. In total 299 flags were put together via over 2,250' of sewing. Thanks to our partners that worked so hard on this part of the display!

As we were working through the word banner to accompany the overhead, we knew we wanted to express the unity within our squad and our connection to our players. The word we kept coming back to was "TOGETHER". A day or two before production of the word banners was to begin, @prisjk contacted us asking if we could help her and some of our players' wives/girlfriends make a banner. The words they were looking for were something expressing:..."WE'RE TOGETHER"...in Spanish. We worked to have the same phrase in English (at the front of our section) and Spanish in front of the box where our players' families support from. Thanks to everyone that created these banners! We also want to thank everyone that helped deploy this display on Sunday!

As a movement we believe in the importance of togetherness...especially with our players. We win together, we lose together. We celebrate together, we reflect on defeat together. We are in this together...no matter what. Sunday's result did not go the way we would have all liked it to, but together we will move forward and prepare for next season. A season that we hope to be another historical one for the Club we love.

If you want to be a part of our movement for 2016, please be in touch and visit our Contact page.

Much Love,

Vancouver Flags

Wednesday, August 26, 2015 is an historic date in the life of ‪#‎OurClub‬. For the very first time we lifted The Voyageurs Cup! Before the match started there was a visual display of support across the entire supporter curva at BC Place. At the heart of that display were hundreds of City of Vancouver flags along with word banners that read, "BY SEA, LAND, AND AIR WE PROSPER. ON THE PITCH WE CONQUER!!!" If you would like to own one of the flags from the display to put on your wall, or better yet to bring to future matches to wave in support of our players on the pitch, you can do so by making a $20 donation. Visit our store www.curvacollective.ca/store.

All proceeds on our end will go to cover the cost of this display and hopefully future displays as well. Be in touch if you have any questions.

Much Love,
