Suspended vertically in the middle of
a street
The upper part of the leaf (the points
of the leaf) should face north in an eastwest street (Figure 2). The upper part of
the leaf should face east in a north-south
street (Figure 3).

flag and the length of the flagstaff. It must
be lowered at least to a position recognizably "half-mast" to avoid the appearance
of a flag which has accidentally fallen
away from the top of the mast. A good
position for half-masting is to place the
centre of the flag exactly half-way down
the staff (Figure 5).

Affixed on a motor vehicle
The flag must be on a pole firmly fixed
to the frame of the car on the front right.
Sharing the same base - three flags
When only three flags are displayed,
the National Flag of Canada should be
at the centre. To an observer facing the
display, the second-ranking flag is placed
to the left of centre, and the other to
the right.
A common combination of flags is the
National Flag of Canada with a provincial
or territorial flag, and a municipal flag
or an organization's banner. In this case,
the National Flag should be in the centre
with the provincial/territorial flag to the
left and the municipal flag/organization's
banner to the right (to an observer facing
the display).

On a flag rope (halyard)
The canton should be raised as closely
as possible to the top with the flag
rope tight.

Projected from a building
Displayed horizontally or at an angle
from a window or balcony, the canton
must point outward.

The Canadian flag flown at half-mast on
six different structures: a standard flagpole, projecting flagpole, a peak or graff,
a mast with an intervening structure, a
mast with crosstrees, platform or top, and
a mast which is surmounting a building.
On occasions requiring that one flag
be flown at half-mast, all flags flown
together should also be flown at halfmast. Flags will only be half-masted on
those flagpoles fitted with halyards and
pulleys. Some buildings fly flags from
horizontal or angled poles, without halyards, to which flags are permanently
attached. Flags on these will not be
half-masted.

When used to cover a casket
at funerals
The canton should be draped over the
upper left corner of the casket (Figure 4).
The Flag should be removed before the
casket is lowered into the grave or, at
a crematorium, after the service. The
flag size for a standard adult-sized casket should be 4 1/2 × 9 feet or 1.40 ×
2.80 metres.

On a flagpole or mast
The top left (first) quarter or canton
should be placed in the position nearest
the top of the flagpole or mast. When
carried, the Flag should be respected.

Disposal of Flags
When a flag becomes tattered and is
no longer in a suitable condition for use,
it should be destroyed in a dignified way.

Folding the National Flag
Half-masting for mourning
Flags are flown at the half-mast position as a sign of mourning.
The flag is brought to the half-mast
position by first raising it to the top of
the mast then immediately lowering it
slowly to the half-mast position.
The position of the flag when flying at
half-mast will depend on the size of the

There is a specific process for the
National Flag of Canada to be folded.
The Canadian flag draped over a casket
symbolizes a final tribute that celebrates
a life that has passed. Being laid to rest
with the Flag is an honour that is not
solely reserved for the funerals of soldiers, veterans, and dignitaries but for
all Canadians.
