Introduction

“Canadian Flag Education Centre”

To all who have interest in our Flag,

We would like to take a minute of your time to introduce our “Canadian Flag Education Centre” based in Brockville, Birthplace of the Canadian Flag.

Our group began in 2010 as “50 Years of Our Flag Committee” to prepare for and execute several major undertakings to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our Canadian Maple Leaf Flag, John Ross Matheson “ Father of our Flag” and Brockville Ontario as the “Birthplace of the Canadian Flag” www.50yearsofourflag.ca , we have transformed into a not-for-profit, knowledge based presentation company.

After nearly 4 ½ years of research and completion of our projects, Robert J. Harper, Susan Harper and Tim Ross have decided to dedicate the next 5 years to bringing awareness to all Canadians of who and how our beloved Canadian Maple Leaf Flag was brought to fruition in 1964/65.

We will travel across Canada in our “Flag Mobile” and provide service clubs, educational groups and the public in general with information sessions. These presentations can be booked by contacting:

The Canadian Flag Education Centre is proud to present a day of information and celebration of our beloved Canadian Maple Leaf Flag.

Please join us for cake and coffee and a one hour information presentation by Robert J. (Bob) Harper Founder and Executive Director as he provides the details of exactly how our Canadian Maple Leaf Flag became the National Flag of Canada being flown for the first time on February 15th 1965. Also learn about how the “Brockville Connection” has been documented in the story of 2 very important Brockville Citizens and their work. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Brockville has such a rich history and the information relating to the work of John Ross Matheson and George M. Beley has been underscored because these 2 Brockville Citizens set out to “get the job done” and not bask in glory, accolades and awards. Please come and learn about some of the things these 2 Brockvillians accomplished.
