What's the cost of replacing the 5 current Parliament Hill flags?
What'd be the cost of replacing these 5 flags only when truly necessary, e.g. when they get frazzled, or must be adjusted to and from half-mast? I don't know the durability (against weather) or longevity of the flags.
Five flags fly on the Hill: one over the Peace Tower, one on each side of the Centre Block, one over the West Block and one over the East Block.
The flag master
Every weekday, the designated flag master changes the Peace Tower flag, except on statutory holidays and during poor weather conditions. The flag is also changed for half-masting. The other Parliament Hill flags are changed weekly and on days that they are at half-mast.
