Statement By The Honourable James Moore, Minister Of Canadian Heritage And Official Languages, On The Occasion Of National Flag Of Canada Day

OTTAWA, Feb. 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Forty-eight years ago today, the National Flag of Canada was first raised on Parliament Hill, in communities across the country, and in Canadian missions around the world. This powerful source of inspiration, hope and pride is recognized the world over as a symbol of Canada's history, heritage, values and traditions.

National Flag of Canada Day provides us with a unique opportunity to reflect on what it means to be Canadian, and to acknowledge the people, accomplishments, history, institutions and values that have helped shape our national identity. As we approach Canada's 150 th birthday in 2017, let us continue to celebrate all the things that make Canada the united, strong and free country in which we live today.

Our Government is proud to observe National Flag of Canada Day and to honour all those who have borne the Canadian flag and represented our nation around the world.

On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Government of Canada, I invite all Canadians to visit www.canada.gc.ca/flagday to learn more about this powerful symbol of our country, which inspires pride in our past and confidence in our future. I also invite you to take a few moments to watch the new Flag Day video and see what the Canadian flag means to some of our public figures.
