Canada Flag - Maple LeafThe quest for a new national flag actually began in 1925. The single maple leaf design was approved in the country's national colors, red and white by resolution of the House of Commons on December 15, 1964, followed by the Senate on December 17, 1964.

A proclamation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada on January 28, 1965, established Canada Flag Day as a national holiday to take effect on February 15, 1965.
