February 15 is National Flag of Canada Day
OTTAWA, Feb. 15, 2019 /CNW/ - Today we celebrate the 54th anniversary of the National Flag of Canada. Our flag is a symbol that unites us all and reflects our common values of equality, diversity and inclusion.
Our beautiful flag is a representation of who we are as Canadians: a diverse family, united in shared democratic values.
For the many Canadians who travel abroad, seeing the Canadian flag on the suitcase of a fellow traveller or displayed at an international event instantly evokes a feeling of warmth and belonging.
I invite you to celebrate National Flag of Canada of Day by taking the photo challenge and posting your best pictures on social media with the hashtag #CanadianFlag. You can also visit our website for more fun ideas on how to celebrate. No matter how you choose to mark this day, do it with pride!
To my fellow Canadians, happy National Flag of Canada Day!
