National Flag of Canada Day!

“The flag is the symbol of the nation’s unity, for it, beyond any doubt, represents all the citizens of Canada without distinction of race, language, belief or opinion,” declared the Speaker of the Senate at the Inauguration of the new flag in 1965.

On February 15, 1965, our national flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill. Canada was just two years away from centennial celebrations when the maple leaf flag was made official by Royal Proclamation. In 1996, February 15 was declared National Flag of Canada Day and has been observed every year since.

February 15, 2015, is the 50th Anniversary of the National Flag of Canada. Canadians are invited to join together and celebrate our flag!

We are so very proud of our Canadian flag! Even took it on our travels when we lived in Brazil and China!

So naturally On the 50th Birthday of our great flag…we had to take a few pictures ( before the crazy winter blizzard we are having today)

I have said before, I think living in other countries for a period of time really makes you appreciate your own. With that comes the attitude of being proud of your country and wearing her colors and displaying the flag proudly!

 

And just for fun…

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
