Saturday, 15 February, London Celebrates Canada recognized the National Flag of Canada Day at Loblaw Great Food’s Masonville Store in the morning then at London’s Covent Garden Market in the afternoon. 1,000 hand held Canada flags and more than 750 Canada flag lapel pins were distributed. Londoners that brought in their tired flag received a new one sponsored by their Member of Parliament.

 

Volunteers included the reigning Miss Teen Canada, Celina Rivas Vasquez; Kelly Shute, Directors Tamara Chapman and Randy Warden, Members of Parliament Susan Truppe and Ed Holder and London Mayor Joe Fontana.

 

 

National Flag of Canada Day

February 15 was declared National Flag of Canada Day in 1996. It marks the day in 1965 when our red and white maple leaf flag was first raised over Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and indeed, hundreds of communities across Canada. Red and white were designated as Canada's official colours in 1921 by His Majesty King George V. This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate our flag and what it stands for: a Dominion that is the envy of the world.

 

Annually, London Celebrates Canada participates in activity to promote the National Flag of Canada.
