This version of the Canadian Red Ensign was Canada’s unofficial flag from 1957-1965.
(Yes, I realize it’s been called ‘Canada Day‘ for years now, but I don’t care. It should still be ‘Dominion Day‘; our flag should be the Canadian Red Ensign, and our (at least English Canadians‘) national anthem should always be ‘The Maple Leaf Forever‘, written by Alexander Muir. As a patriotic reactionary, these are my symbols.)
Here’s the best version of The Maple Leaf Forever I’ve been able to find online; it omits the second verse, alas; I’ve reprinted the full lyrics below.
In days of yore, from Britain’s shore,
Wolfe, the dauntless hero came,
Here may it wave, our boast, our pride,
And joined in love together,
The thistle, shamrock, rose entwine
The Maple Leaf
