      For the Canadian Militias the use of regimental colours was a
      non-starter. These emblems were only issued by the authorised fiat of the
      crown in England and this took time. I have several references that show
      that although colours were proposed for various militia regiments towards
      the end of the war, some were refused, while those that did get made and
      sent over did not arrive until well after the war ended. For example, the
      colours for the Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada were not presented
      until 1822 (seven years after the regiment was disbanded!). These colours
      are now housed in the Canadian War Museum.
