happy birthday to the Canadian flag. the current designed was first made public on this day in 1965. there was much debate and controversy leading up to "the Great Flag Debate." after six months and many speeches, the design was ultimately passed on Dec. 15, 1964 and was approved by the House of Commons (163 to 78). Queeb Elizabeth II proclaimed on January 28, 1965 and inaugurated on Feb. 15. below is the previous red ensign flag and the current flag.
