National Flag of Canada Day

From the Ministry of Canadian Heritage:
February 15 is National Flag of Canada Day. It marks the day in 1965 when our red and white maple leaf flag was first raised over Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and in hundreds of communities from coast to coast to coast. This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate our flag and what it stands for — a country and a citizenship that are the envy of the world. In our often understated ways, be it instructing students in a school classroom, taking time to listen to the stories of veterans, or volunteering at the local community centre, Canadians share their pride in our flag and in their common values.
Happy Flag Day!
