February 15/15 10:46 am - National Flag Day - 50 Years of the Maple Leaf


Posted by Editor on 02/15/15
 

Today is the 50th anniversary of the unveiling of our national flag, when it was first raised on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. In 1996, February 15th was designated National Flag of Canada Day.

I travel a lot, and on the back of my photo vest is sewn a Canadian flag. It is instantly recognized pretty much anywhere in the world and I regularly hear 'Ah, Canada!'. It is a powerful image.

So, take a moment to reflect on the symbol of our country.
