Today is Canada’s National Flag Day! In honour of that and the recent Vernon Winter Carnival Celebrates Canada’s 150th, my daughters adorned their snowman with the Canadian flag.
If you have video, or photos to share of the Canadian Flag flying at your home or place of business. You can TALK or TEXT 250-545-7557, Facebook, Instagram, email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet. Here’s a bit about the history of our national flag and more:
A news release from the Government of Canada:
“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. Canadians are invited to celebrate this important symbol of our identity by organizing their own events and by showing their pride on social media.
Take part in the “Share your Moment with the Flag Challenge” by posting a picture or video of you with the flag and inspire others to do the same! #canadianflag.”
