2023 Waving Through Time Banner

Join us for Part 1 of a 2-part online and micro exhibit highlighting commercial and recreational flags that have waved through time on the Great Lakes! Part 1 features flags connected to the Great Lakes Industry. Hundreds of companies made their presence known on the lakes using different flags to showcase their identity as well as communicate. Join us as we tap into the National Museum of the Great Lakes’s vast collection to highlight the navigational symbols and house flags whose passage through our Sweetwater Seas, helped to build the world we live in today. 

The Online Exhibit:

Beginning February 15, every two weeks through April 26, we will introduce a series of flags online who have helped commercial vessels thrive on the Great Lakes and throughout North America. From company Logos, to signal flags and more—we’ll retell history and learn their significance as they sailed the “sweetwater seas.”

Content will be available online at nmgl.org/wavingthroughtime with a new series of featured flags becoming available to enjoy online on the following dates:

Series 1: February 15

Series 2: March 1

Series 3: March 15

Series 4: March 29

Series 5: April 12

Series 6: April 26

The Micro Exhibit: Visit the museum on mid-March to see some of the flags featured in our online exhibit. Take a deeper dive into some expanded stories and related artifacts showcasing their historic significance in guiding commercial vessels through our sweetwater seas.
