Canada's "Maple Leaf" flag, inspired by the flag of the Royal Military College of Canada, was selected in 1964 after a long and divisive debate. Addressing both the French and the English factions, the color red was taken from the St. George's Cross, and the white from the French royal emblem. The Maple Leaf was selected as a symbol of all Canada. All Annin Flagmakers flags are sewn in either South Boston, VA or Coshocton, OH.
