The actual size of the flag in the picture is 3×5. The artwork on all other sizes is identical.
The national flag of Canada consists of a red background with a white square on which is centered a red eleven-pointed maple leaf which is centered on the red field. The flag is often referred to as the “Canadian Flag” or the “Maple Leaf”. This flag design was the 1st to be officially adopted by both houses of parliament resulting from a committee formed in 1964 to resolve the ongoing issue of Canada not having an official national flag. The Canadian Red Ensign had been the unofficial flag of Canada from the 1860s until the Maple Leaf flag made its official debut on February 15th, 1965. This date is still celebrated as “National Flag of Canada Day”. The flag was designed by George Stanley and was based on the flag of the Royal Military College of Canada. The Maple Leaf Flag has become the predominant and most recognizable symbol of Canada.
Nylon is a durable, lightweight material that flies easily in a light breeze. The Maple Leaf is dyed onto the center white nylon fabric panel penetrating through to the opposite side so the image is visible on both sides of the flag. The red panels are sewn onto either side of the center white panel.
