Curiosity:

- The colors of the flag, white and red, represent the colors of England and France, countries that helped found Canada.
- The National Anthem of Canada, "O Canada" (English version):

The Canada!

Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all your sons command.



With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
