A wonderful banner designed to advertise Montreal's Expo 67. It calls for people to "Meet 70 nations at Expo 67" and displays the different flags representing participating countries... not to mention the Expo 67 logo flag which makes an appearance twice throughout the set!
The 1967 International and Universal Exposition or Expo 67, as it was commonly known, was the general exhibition, Category One World's Fair held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada from April 27 to October 29, 1967. It was considered to be the most successful World's Fair of the 20th century, with the most attendees (50 million visits) to that date and 62 nations participating. It also set the single-day attendance record for a world's fair, with 569,000 visitors on its third day.
Expo 67 was Canada's main celebration during its centennial year. The fair was originally intended to be held in Moscow, to help the Soviet Union celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, but, for various reasons, the Soviets decided to cancel, and Canada was awarded it in the fall of 1962.
After the event ended in October 1967, the site and most of the pavilions lived on as an exhibition called Man and His World, open during the summer months from 1968 until 1981. By that time, most of the buildings, which had not been designed to last beyond the original exhibition, had deteriorated and were dismantled. Today, the islands that hosted the world exhibition are mainly used as parkland and for recreational use, with only a few remaining structures from Expo 67 to show that the event was held there. Many Canadians from that time still regard it as one of the country's finest cultural achievements.
An extraordinary find, this extremely rare unlined banner is in excellent condition. The perfect addition to anyone's collection of Montreal memorabilia, a great souvenir for those who attended the event, even flag aficionados or someone who just wants to decorate their home! less
