Canadian flag facts

During the Suez Crisis of 1956, the Egyptian government objected to having Canadian peace keeping forces in the country as they wore the Canadian flag at the time, the red ensign, as seen below. This was thought to be too similar to the Union Jack of the UK who were deeply unpopular in Egypt at that time. 

The Canadian Red Ensign served as the flag of Canada from 1957 - 1965.

Adopted in 1965, the flag of Canada, also known as the Maple leaf, was brought into being to bring a distinctive Canadian feel to the flag. Previously, the Canadian Red Ensign had been used which contains the Union flag of the UK. The flag first flew on February 15, 1965, a date which is now known in Canada as National Flag of Canada Day. It has an 11 pointed maple leaf at its centre and it is twice as long as it is wide.

Great on a tablet PC!

We wanted our pupils to use their tablet PCs in our geography lessons but we found there was a shortage of good resources to use with them. So we started making web pages that can be used in lessons that were accessed through the tablet's browser. What do you think? How can we do this better? Drop us an email to let us know.
