THUNDER BAY – Today is Canada’s flag’s 50th birthday. Long from having a ‘mid-life’ crisis, Canada’s Maple Leaf is proudly waving across Canada.

People are being asked to “Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Flag of Canada by taking part in the “Share your Moment with the Flag” Challenge”.

This challenge gives us an opportunity, as Canadians, to honour the National Flag of Canada, a symbol that is recognized and respected around the world and an enormous source of pride.

Use the hashtags #flag50 and #drapeau50 on Twitter to see the photos and videos of everyone who took part in the challenge.
