Ottawa (capital) Flag History The Canadian flag was adopted on October 22, 1964. During World War 1, Prime Minister Lester Pearson noticed that most Canadian battalions included a maple leaf in their insignia. Therefore, Pearson vowed he would campaign that he would put the maple leaf on the Canadian flag. Fifty years later, Pearson was involved in a 33-day debate that resulted in the maple leaf being placed on the Canadian flag. Even though Canada had been independent of Britain since July 1, 1867, all previous incarnations of Canada’s flags had included the British Union Jack. Canada.
