National Flag of Canada Day

Feb 15, 2019

On February 15, 1965, our national flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill and on the same day in 1996, National Flag of Canada Day was declared. Every year since, we celebrate our Canadian flag on February 15. This year, you are encouraged to participate in the Flag Day photo challenge by posting a picture or video of you and your friends with the Canadian flag and share it on social media using the hashtag #CanadianFlag.

Whether it’s a group or a selfie pic, come together and show your pride in our national symbol. You could even dress in red and white to create a living Canadian flag. Whichever you do, we encourage you to celebrate National Flag of Canada Day. Visit Canada.ca/FlagDay for more information.
