Canada's maple leaf flag is a universally recognized symbol of Canada, but it took many years to reach this status. The first flag used was the St. George's Cross which was flown when explorer John Cabot landed in Newfoundland. It represented England. Through the 18th and 19th centuries, while under British rule, Canada had a series of flags that bore the British ensign - the Union Jack. In 1960, the flag issue was brought to light during the growing separatist threat. A committee was formed to select a national flag. On January 28, 1965, Queen Elizabeth II signed the royal flag proclamation recognizing our current maple leaf flag. It was first flown at Parliament Hill on February 15, 1965.
