๐Ÿ 58 years ago, on February 15, 1965, Canadaโ€™s red and white maple leaf flag was raised for the very first time on Parliament Hill. On the same day in 1996, National Flag of Canada Day was declared.

โค๏ธ Our national flag is a symbol that unites Canadians and reflects the common values we take pride in.

For years I was of the opinion that the Red Ensign was better because it was about the the founding peoples of Canada. I loved the Union Jack element as well! The Maple Leaf flag is much better. There are tons of symbols in the flag. They are subtle but excellent. The Maple Leaf flag is a unifying flag and has great symbolism.
