Monday, February 15th is the 56th birthday of the National Flag of Canada, informally known as The Maple Leaf. In past years Culture Summerside, the arts, heritage, and culture division of the City of Summerside, has celebrated Flag Day with a Summerside school. Because of COVID-19, Culture Summerside is moving the celebration online and invites everyone to the party.
Island actor Mark Haines, with words and music, tells the story of the difficult birth of our national flag, which has become a much loved Canadian symbol. There is 98 years between the forming of the country and the adoption of the flag. The short video was professionally recorded in the historic Wyatt House Museum. It will be available starting Friday online at or Culture Summerside’s Facebook.
