Ste Anne De Beaupre Canada Shrine Felt Pennant

This pennant from the shrine of Sainte Anne de Beaupré was my mother's. We are not certain but it probably dates from the 1930s - 1940s. We believe mother likely traveled there with a friend to visit this religious shrine in the city of Quebec, Canada.

This pennant is approximately 8 inches wide and 28 inches long. It is made of dark blue felt with stamped on white lettering. An attractive wreath of maple leaves with the word CANADA in "twigs" is done in gold and brown. A white strip of felt is sewn across, holding the four blue tie strips. The printed on decoration is in excellent condition, with no chips, gouges or discoloration.

There are NO rips, tears, stains, or loose threads, but this pennant shows a slight amount of "age grunge" with a grayish haze across the top of the white vertical felt strip. Also, the very tip is torn where it apparently was mounted with a thumbtack (we have NOT attempted to repair this but it can be done). There are two tiny thumbtack holes at each end of the white vertical strip.

IMPORTANT: We have NOT attempted to clean or freshen up this pennant in any way.

BACKGROUND: As Christians may know, Saint Anne was the mother of the Virgin Mary, and thus was the grandmother of Jesus. A breathtakingly beautiful, two-spired basilica is the focus of one of the most famous shrines in Canada, around which the village of Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré has grown up. The shrine and museum complex attracts more than 1.5 million visitors annually.
