UPDATE (July 1, 8:30 a.m.): The Canada flag will now be on display ay Kelowna City Hall throughout the weekend.
The City of Kelowna has made temporary adjustments to the flag pole and the flag has been restored at the top of the mast.
Further repairs to the pole will continue next week.
The Canada flag won’t fly above Kelowna City Hall this weekend as the nation celebrates its 155th birthday.
According to the city there was a break in the mechanism that raises and lowers flags at city hall.
The specialized service to repair the flag pole’s hoisting mechanism is provided by a Vancouver company that was unable to get to the repair in time for Canada Day. The repairs are expected to take place next week.
The city wants to ensure residents and visitors were aware that this repair is underway and the flag will be displayed in its proper place as soon as possible.
