John Baird, Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister, is presented with the last Canadian flag to fly over Camp Nathan Smith in Kandahar, Afghanistan, by Tim Martin, Representative of Canada in Kandahar, in Ottawa on August 2, 2011.
For six years, Camp Nathan Smith was home to the Kandahar Provincial Reconstruction Team. The team comprised Canadian and U.S. diplomats and development specialists, and Canadian police officers, correctional experts and military personnel.
The flag will be displayed at Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada's headquarters as a reminder of the team's service and sacrifice.
