The Canadian Flag in Vancouverby
On February 15th, 1965 our country had a new flag design and the very first time it was hoisted was at Vancouver City Hall. Because of the time differential, the new flag went up at 6:00am which made this its first appearance in Canada after its official proclamation [source]. It’s been almost 49 years since the red, white, and maple leaf first waved in the Pacific breeze and in honour of this I have rounded up some photos of our nation’s flag from around the city over the years…

…That, and with Canada’s stellar performance at the Sochi Winter Olympics so far, it seems like as good a time as any to show off our flag a bit, eh?

Very Nice Pictures
WOW, great photos
Thanks for highlighting some of my photos, B. One of the things I missed out 4 years ago was seeing the number of “red, white, and maple leaf” flags flying throughout town, but the wonderful images here provide a look back. Thanks for your post!
