Flag Day in Canada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Flag Day in Canada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Flag Day is celebrated on February 15 in Canada, commemorating the adoption of the Maple Leaf flag on that date in 1965. The day is marked by flying the flag, occasional public ceremonies (especially in 2005, its 40th anniversary), and educational programs in schools.

The banner replaced the Red Ensign which had been in use, if not officially, in one form or another since 1868. The new distinctive Canadian Flag first flew on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, on Feb. 15, 1965."
