This plaque is in front of the old Cort House of Niagara on the lake.
We can see on it:
On December 10, 2013, exactly 200 years from the burning of the town during the War of 1812.1814, the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake unveiled its first Town flag. The flag was raised by Lord Mayor Dave Eke and Bishop Ralph Spence, Albion Herald Extraordinary, at an official ceremony at the Niagara-on the-Lake Court House.
The Town flag, a symbol of new beginnings and a lasting legacy of peace between the British Crown and United States, features the Royal Union Flag of 1707 and the shield from the Town S official Coat of Arms granted by the Canadian Heraldic Authority. The mace within the shield is a gilt wood object dating from 1792 and indicates that Niagara-on-the-Lake, known then as Newark, was the first capital of the province of Upper Canada. The maple leaf coronets further this allusion and indicate the town's Canadian identity.
