The National Flag of Canada( the Maple Leaf and l'Unifolié) is a flag consisting of a red field with a white square at its centre, in the middle of which is featured a red maple leaf. Adopted in 1965 to replace the Union Flag , it is the first ever specified by statute law for use as the country's national flag. The Canadian Red Ensign had been unofficially used since the 1890s and was approved by a 1945 Order in Council for use "wherever place or occasion may make it desirable to fly a distinctive Canadian flag". Thanks, Sierra!
