Did you know that since Canada’s beginning as a country in 1867, we didn’t have an "official” flag?
While the British Royal Union banner was frequently utilized, and afterward later a Canadianized version of the British Red Ensign, nor were really the official flags for Canada.
In 1964, the Prime Minister Lester Pearson’s personal choice was three red leaves on a white background with blue borders, but Canada’s official colours were only red and white. In the end the all-party committee settled the debate once and for all with the choice of the single red leaf with two red borders.Today we celebrate the 53rd anniversary of our flag. A symbol of honour, perseverance and courage.
