National Flag of Canada Day
February 15th is the birthday of the National Flag of Canada, which is more commonly known as the Maple Leaf. Canada did not adopt its own flag until February 15th, 1965, even though the country was formed in 1867.
Each year Culture Summerside joins with an area school to celebrate Flag Day, and bring to life the story of the National Flag of Canada.
For 2020, Culture Summerside produced an online video to commemorate flag day, which can be viewed in our video gallery here.
