Today is Canada's Flag's birthday. It was February 15, 1965 when our flag was officially raised for the first time. After months of sometimes contentious debate in the House of Commons, the current Maple Leaf designed was chosen and a flag proclaimed. Today, the Canadian flag and the Maple Leaf are 2 of the most recognized symbols around the world, a flag respected by most people and loved by millions.
Happy 49th Birthday you Maple Leaf, You!
