Happy Flag Day!

On February 15, 1965 our national flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill. Canada was just two years away from centennial celebrations when the maple leaf flag was made official by Royal Proclamation. In 1996, February 15 was declared National Flag of Canada Day and has been observed every year since.

In 1964, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson formed a committee to resolve the issue, sparking a serious debate about a flag change to replace the Union Flag. Out of three choices, the maple leaf design by George Stanley, based on the flag of the Royal Military College of Canada, was selected.

Great show guys! Got all the petitions signed, and forwarded off to all my friends and gun club guys.


5/5 by bequiri

I suppose as one of the occasional co-hosts I am a little biased, but, seriously…you should give us a listen…and if you give us a 5 star revue, you can pick what I drink for an episode….within reason…
