On 15 February 1965, on Parliament Hill, Ottawa, the Canadian flag inauguration ceremony is held in the presence of Governor General Georges Vanier, the Premier Lester B. Pearson and members of the Cabinet, as well as thousands of citizens. The Red Ensign was descended first, bearing the Union Jack and the coat of arms of the Royal Arms of Canada. Then, at noon, the maple leaf was hoisted. The crowd then sang the O Canada national anthem followed by the God save the Queen. The words said that day by Maurice Bourget, President of the Senate, give an even more symbolic meaning to this flag: "The flag is the symbol of the unity of the nation, because it represents without a shadow of a doubt all citizens of Canada, regardless of race, language, belief or opinion".
The second largest country in the world in terms of its surface, Canada occupies most of North America. It extends east to west from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and to the north up to the Arctic Ocean and shares two borders with the United States to the south and northwest (Alaska) . Originally occupied by indigenous people, the country was born from the union of three British colonies, which were French colonies in the days of New France. Today it is a federation state of ten provinces and three territories. Canada gained independence from the United Kingdom peacefully in a process that spanned from 1867 to 1982.
