Invictus Games National Relay Flag Tour
The Invictus Games National Flag Tour began on Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt, B.C. on August 16, before making its way east across the country.
Lasting 37 days, the 10 000 km flag relay will see 152 Canadians carry the Invictus Games flag across Canada as it visits 22 military bases, 15 branches of the Royal Canadian Legion, and more than 50 communities. Its final stop is Toronto where it will arrive in time for the opening of the third Invictus Games, which will run from September 23 to 30, where more than 550 competitors from 17 participating allied nations will be competing.
Founded by Prince Harry in 2014, the Invictus Games is the only international sporting competition honouring wounded military personnel and veterans.
