Activities for National Flag Day of Canada - February 15

On National Flag Day of Canada or Canada Day you can wear red and white, the official colours of Canada since 1921,  to commemorate our flag.

Make your own Canadian Flag using construction papers, pencil crayons, crayons, or paint and wave it on Canada Day.

Bake a Canada Flag Day Cake  or Canada Day Cake:  Preheat the oven as per baking instructions for your favourite flavour of cake. Prepare the cake batter and place it in a greased 11x14 cake pan and bake it in the oven as per instructions.  After baking, let the cake cool and then frost it with white icing.  Use strawberries, raspberries or red sprinkles to create a Canadian flag design on the top of the cake.
