Canada 150: 1867 to 2017

Canada 150: 1867 to 2017
Modern-day Canada was created on 1867-07-01. This year (2017), Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary.

At the Kingston Yacht Club, the flags of Canada's 10 provinces and three territories are flanked by two Maple Leaf flags on both sides.

From left to right, the flags are:

Canada's National Flag (the Red Maple Leaf)
Province of British Columbia
Province of Alberta
Province of Saskatchewan
Province of Manitoba
Province of Ontario
Province de Québec/ Province of Quebec
Province of New Brunswick/ Province du Nouveau-Brunswick
Province of Nova Scotia
Province of Prince Edward Island
Province of Newfoundland and Labrador
Yukon Territory
Northwest Territories
Nunavut Territory
Canada's National Flag (the Red Maple Leaf)

Also interestingly, Kingston almost became Canada's Capital City, but it was considered too open to a possible naval attack from the United States and the more in-land Ottawa was chosen as the capital instead.
