On February 15, 1965, our national flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill. On the same day in 1996, National Flag of Canada Day was declared. Every year since, we celebrate our beautiful flag on February 15th.
Staff and students at St. Jerome CES are encouraged to wear red and white or a Canadian team jersey to celebrate the 54th anniversary of our flag on Friday Feb. 15, 2019. Our students will receive Flag Day freebies (paper flags, stickers, posters) at school on Flag Day.
