New Delhi: Canada day is observed every year on the 1st of July. It is celebrated to you remember the joining of its three main provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Canada province, which is now Ontario and Quebec) as one nation in 1857. until a few years back instead of the Canada day this day was called the Dominion day.
The Canadian Flag
After the Indian and French wars in the 1700s, the French lost most of the Canadian land and handed it over to Britain. The territory used a Britain flag until some of the Canadians demanded that they needed their own flag, so the British flag was minimized to the upper left corner and a crest was added on the right side.
however, it was demanded that the flag should represent something more specific about the country. The search became more focused in the 1960s when the country completed its hundred years. The maple tree is very famous in most parts of Canada and the leaf on the flag was found perfect to represent the country as it was quite specific and bright skin colour.
Canada day is celebrated by marking a nationwide holiday. as of this year, it won't be any different due to the worldwide log down because of the global pandemic coronavirus.
