YOUR MAPLE LEAF 50 YEARS OF FLYING HIGH AND PROUD

On 15 Feb 2015 your Maple Leaf will celebrate 50 years of Flying High and Proud representing the people of Canada.
As you look up a Her as she waves in the wind over your great Country I stand beside all Canadians and Salute your Maple Leaf!

I got to raise the 'new' Canadian flag for the first time it went up at my school in 1965 because I was the youngest boy in kindergarten at St. Augustine's School in Dundas at the time. The youngest girl helped with lowering the old one and then I helped raise the new flag as part of the ceremony celebrating the change of flags in front of the entire school and a bunch of local dignitaries.

So it is always easy for me to remember what year we got the Maple Leaf as our flag. lol .
