‘Rive Gauche’ is simply French for ‘left bank’ — the left bank of a river as you travel downstream.
In Paris the ‘rive gauche’ includes Montparnasse…the Paris of the authors and artists. In Port Credit the ‘rive gauche’ is the east bank of the Credit River as travels toward Lake Ontario…with its dining and nightlife.
Available in a variety of sizes (and any colour as long as it’s white) the marine flags aren’t just a nautical touch, they spell out PORT CREDIT.
The price is all-inclusive and includes shipping by Canada Post anywhere in Canada (only). Outside of Canada please contact us and we’ll advise of shipping costs.
