Rules for Flying the
National Flag of Canada

Dignity of the Flag
The National Flag of Canada should be
displayed only in a manner appropriate
for this important national symbol; it
should not be subjected to dishonour
or displayed in a position inferior to
any other flag or ensign. The National
Flag always takes priority over all other
national flags when flown in Canada. The
only flags that are given priority over the
Canadian flag are the personal standards
of members of the Royal Family and of

Her Majesty's eleven representatives
in Canada.
The National Flag of Canada should
always be flown on its own mast; flag
protocol states that it is improper to fly
two or more flags on the same mast (for
example, one beneath the other). The
following points should be kept in mind:
* the National Flag of Canada should not
be used as a table or seat cover, as a
masking for boxes or as a barrier on
a stage or platform;
* it is not common practice to use the
National Flag of Canada to cover
a statue, monument or plaque for
an unveiling ceremony, and should
be discouraged;
* nothing should be pinned to or sewn
on the National Flag of Canada; and
* the National Flag of Canada should
not be signed or marked in any way. A
border could be attached to its outside
edge, which can be marked while leaving the Flag itself untouched.
When the National Flag of Canada is
raised or lowered, or when it is carried in a
parade or review, everyone present should
face the Flag, remain silent and remove
their hats. Those in uniform should salute.

Displaying the Flag
The National Flag is flown at all federal
government buildings, airports, as well as
military bases and establishments within
and outside Canada. It may be flown by
night as well as by day.
The National Flag of Canada may be
displayed as follows:
Flat against a surface, horizontally
and vertically
If hung horizontally, the upper part of
the leaf (the points of the leaf) should
be up and the stem down. If hung vertically, the flag should be placed so that
the upper part of the leaf points to the left
and the stem to the right from the point
of view of the observer facing the Flag.
Flags hung vertically should be hung so
that the canton is in the upper left corner.

T

he National Flag of
Canada can be displayed in many different ways, from the
front yard of a house
to the top of a building. There are rules
and guidelines on how to display this
flag to honour it.
The National Flag can also be flown
with the provincial or territorial flags,
or those of organizations and other
nations, in which cases it would take
the position of honour. Individuals can
always see our flag proudly being flown
on Parliament Hill.
