Canada’s National Flag, characterized by its simplicity with red and white hues and a solitary maple leaf, carries profound significance in Canadian history, embodying pride and strength. The adoption of this iconic and unique design is marked by a royal proclamation signed by Queen Elizabeth II on January 28, and the flag’s first raising on Parliament Hill on February 15.
