From what I've read it will be decided in the off-season. Apparently we need Provincial approval to have the Alberta flag on the jersey, so it could go either way.

Personally I like the flag on the jersey and hope they continue to use it.

As an outsider, I really don't like either shoulder patch IMO. Calgary isn't Canada's only team nor is it Alberta's only team.

Just my opinion.

That's the silliest thing I've ever heard. Since when is planting a flag on something equal to what you're saying?

It's a symbol of pride, not ownership.

It is kind of weird considering other teams dont have state or providence flags on their jerseys. I wouldnt mind it if everyone had it but since only Calgary has it and they arent even the only Alberta team out there.

It looks terrible imo and they should remove it at the earliest date.

IMO I don't really like it. The Canadian flag looks fine since it meshes well with the Flames jersey colors, but the Alberta blue on the Flames home red? That looks horrible.

Those are my thoughts as well.

Those patches are extremely ugly. They ruin one of the best jerseys in the league. It's ludicrous that they have both flags. They don't represent Alberta and they certainly don't represent Canada. I liked when the Jays added the Maple Leaf to their hat (which they've since gotten rid of) and when the Raps changed their colours to red, but this is just stupid.

Why do people think that? They didn't put those flags on their jerseys to say they were Canada/Alberta's team.

I'm not a big fan of them, but it's mostly because of their shape, they look like big stickers =\

They didn't...it just looks odd with Calgary the only team having the flags.

If every Canadian team did it, then I wouldn't have a problem with it.

I'm sure everybody know they didn't put the patches there to say they are Alberta's/Canada's team, that's why it doesn't make sense.

Bruins fan here, but the Flames are my second favorite team, so I thought I would voice my opinion, of course if its alright with you guys.

I didn't like them at first, but now I don't really mind them. They're unique and it shows pride in their country/province, IMO.

If the Oilers wanted to put flags on their jerseys I wouldn't care at all, it was the Flames choice to use the flags. Should they have asked permission from every other Canadian team in the league?

I agree with Rattle and Worcester, it's more of a prideful gesture, not so much an arrogant "We're Canada/Alberta's team" statement.
