Celebrate our flag and what it stands for
"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. Red and white were designated as Canada's official colours in 1921 by His Majesty King George V."
