Canadian Flag Turns 52 Today
It’s Canada’s 150th year, but the red and white flag we are known for around the world is just over half a century old as of Wednesday. On February 15, 1965 our national flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill. Every year since 1996, when Parliament declared February 15th as National Flag of Canada Day, we celebrate our beautiful flag.
In 2017, the National Flag of Canada is celebrating its 52nd anniversary.
