Hudson Bay Company Heritage in the USA

click map for larger image

Since four US States at one time were a part of the Hudson Bay Company, I have created four flags reflective of this honorable Canadian Heritage. Basically these four states have rivers that flow into the Hudson Bay.

These are post-historical heritage flags for Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. From 1670 until 1818 parts of these states were 'Canadian' under the compact of the Hudson Bay Company!

North Dakota HBC Flag

South Dakota HBC Flag

Minnesota HBC Flag

Montana HBC Flag

Montana would get a double dose of Canadian Heritage. Because her western portion was a part of Oregon Territory until 1846 - which was a "Bi-National Territory" ruled by the UK and US at the same time. (see my Oregon Territory Flag Post Here)
