Wear your red and white and join us for free public skating, a craft and treats to celebrate the 49th birthday of our National Flag and get in the team Canada spirit.
National Flag Day
Saturday, February 15th
11:15 am to 12:30 pm
Jim Lind Arena
National Flag of Canada Day was declared in in 1996. It marks the day in 1965 when our red and white maple leaf flag was first raised over Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and indeed, hundreds of communities across Canada. Red and white were designated as Canada's official colours in 1921 by His Majesty King George V. This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate our flag and what it stands for: a Dominion that is the envy of the world.
Canadian Flag pins, stickers, bookmarks and hand flags will be handed out at the event.
