Bicentennial flag

[Queenston 1812, Ontario] image located by Valentin Poposki, 9 July 2011

Bicentennial flag design causes problems. Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario: A banner-like flag is criticized for being too much like a banner, and not enough like a flag.
Valentin Poposki, 9 July 2011

The point of disagreement being a "blue banner", blue flywise stripe of one sixth (or less) of the hoist in height, that runs over most of the flag, bearing text "Niagara-on-the-Lake" in white, or in a different flag with a closely related design "Queenston". One side want that "banner" removed because they feel it makes the flag too banner-like, presumable because the "banner" doesn't fit in with the rest of the flag, and the other doesn't want to remove it, probably because the scheme of two flags differing in the name would break down if they did.
