Happy National Flag of Canada Day from the students at Abraham Erb Public School!

Happy National Flag of Canada Day!  On February 15, 1965 our national flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill. Then, in 1996, February 15th was declared National Flag of Canada Day. Every year since, we celebrate our beautiful flag.

In 2018, the National Flag of Canada is celebrating its 53rd anniversary during the 2018 Winter Olympics. Canadians are invited to celebrate this important symbol of our identity by organizing their own events, showing their pride on social media and cheering on Canadian Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

The government of Canada has invited everyone to join the “Take a selfie with the flag” challenge by posting a picture or video of you and your friends with the National Flag of Canada on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with #CanadianFlag.
