On February, 15, 1995, Canadians from coast to coast joined together in celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Canadian flag. The unveiling for this new commemorative stamp was held in Montreal at Flag Day ceremonies, organized by Canadian Heritage as part of their "Put the Flag in Motion" campaign launch. The Red Maple Leaf design of our flag received Parliamentary approval on December 17, 1964, after one of the longest debates in Canadian history. It was proclaimed by Her Majesty the Queen on January 28, 1965.
