Flag – Canada Although Canada became independent from Britain in 1867, it was not until 1964 that the current flag was adopted. It is nicknamed the Maple Leaf due to the large red maple leaf in the middle of the flag. The white in the flag was taken from the French royal emblem while the red was from St. George’s Cross.
