Saturday, 15 February, 2020, may have been the start of Reading Week but it was also a day not so easily overlooked. It was Flag Day, marking the first time the Maple Leaf flew as the national flag of Canada on 15 February 1965.

For alumni memories of the first Flag Day please see here.

Le samedi 15 février 2020, c’était le début de la semaine de lecture, mais c’était aussi une journée pas si facile à oublier. C’était le jour du drapeau, qui marque la première fois que la feuille d’érable flotte sous le drapeau national du Canada le 15 février 1965.

Pour les souvenirs des anciens du premier jour du drapeau, veuillez voir ici.
