Description of the Flag

"Bombardier was founded by Joseph-Armand Bombardier as "L'Auto-Neige Bombardier Limitée" (loosely translated to "Bombardier Snow Car Limited") on July 10, 1942. In 1967 L'Auto-Neige Bombardier Limitée was renamed Bombardier Limited. In 1970 Bombardier acquired the Austrian company Lohner-Rotax, a manufacturer of snowmobile engines and tramways, and became involved with rail business. In 1986, Bombardier acquired Canadair after the Canadian government-owned aircraft manufacturing company recorded the largest corporate loss in Canadian history. Shortly thereafter, de Havilland Canada, Short Brothers and Learjet operations were absorbed by the aerospace arm. In 2001 Bombardier acquired Adtranz (DaimlerChrysler Rail Systems), a manufacturer of trains.
