What do the colours and the symbols on the Canadian flag represent?

  • History -

    The red is representing the flag of England (St George's Cross) and white to represent the French royal emblem. The red maple leaf has long been the emblem and symbol of Canada. The red bands on either side represent the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, red being one of Canada's colours and red, not blue, to represent the blood spilt by the nation's brave soldiers to defend it

    The Maple leaf with its eleven points signifies the eleven first kings in the mountain region érable.
