Happy Canada Day Eve?

Canadian Flag
I confess I am an American but living so close to Canada (southeastern Michigan) I’m quite aware of the special folks who call themselves Canadians. I remember when the Canadian Flag looked much different from that of today and want to share a little about how the current flag originated. From the Toronto Public Library:

The Red Maple Leaf: How Canada’s Flag Came to Be

The Inauguration of Canada’s Current Flag: February 15, 1965

Also, 2015 marks 50 years since Canada’s official adoption of the current flag. I guess that says far too much about my age
