Canada Flag Banner

Today is Canada’s annual National Flag of Canada Day, first established in 1996.

 

The flag is the symbol of the nation’s unity, for it, beyond any doubt, represents all the citizens of Canada without distinction of race, language, belief or opinion,”

Maurice Bourget, Speaker of the Senate

Our very own Canadian Flag was first adopted in 1966, making it 51 years old this year (2016).
Watch it being raised for the very first time:
