Detailed Description

The Maple leaf flag is the national flag of Canada. It consists of a red field with a white square at its centre in the ratio of 1:2:1, in the middle of which is featured a stylized, red, 11-pointed maple leaf charged in the centre. It is the first flag approved by the Parliament of Canada for use as the country's national flag replacing the unofficially used Red Canadian Ensign

In 1964, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson formed a committee to resolve the ongoing issue of the lack of an official Canadian flag. There was three choices but eventually the design by George Stanley was chosen. It was based on the flag of the Royal Military College of Canada was selected. The flag was officially used on February 15, 1965 (National Flag of Canada Day).
