The Canadian flag consists of three vertical stripes: the right and left stripes are red and of equal size. The center stripe is white and in the middle of it is a red eleven-pointed maple leaf emblem.

Red and white are the national colors of Canada; these were proclaimed as the official colors of the country by King George in 1921. The color red was taken from the Saint George’s Cross and the color white from the French royal emblem.

The maple leaf at the center of the flag represents the national tree of Canada. The Canadian flag is also known as the Maple Leaf flag and was inspired by the flag of The Royal Military College of Canada.
