"Celebrate Canada" honors and pays tribute to the people who contributed to the creation of the flag covering a 100 years of history. These people are those that helped bring the Candian Maple Leaf Flag to fruition in 1965. The Flag and the people listed are surronded by scenes from across Canada produced by the estimed Canadian artist  Phil Chadwick in the Tommy Thompson style"Robert Harper, Chair,  50Years of Our Flag Committee
