National Flag Day

National Flag of Canada Day

February 15 was declared National Flag of Canada Day in 1996. It marks the day in 1965 when our red and white maple leaf flag was first raised over Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and indeed, hundreds of communities across Canada. Red and white were designated as Canada's official colours in 1921 by His Majesty King George V. This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate our flag and what it stands for: a Dominion that is the envy of the world. 

The material on this Web site is intended to provide readers with background on the National Flag of Canada, including its history, its symbolism and flag etiquette.

February 15 – National Flag of Canada Day – is the perfect opportunity to learn about the history of the flag.

Our Flag. Our Pride. Celebrate it!  Happy National Flag of Canada Day!
