According to many historians, the maple leaf began to serve as a Canadian symbol as early as 1700. Following are some examples of how the maple leaf grew in public consciousness as a symbol of our country until it finally became official on February 15, 1965, as an integral component of the national flag of Canada.

In 1834, Ludger Duvernay is reported to have proposed the maple leaf as an emblem of Canada when the Societe Saint-Jean-Babtiste was founded on June 24 of that year.

In 1836, Le Canadien, a newspaper published in Lower Canada, referred to it as a suitable emblem for Canada.

In August 1860, at a public meeting held in Toronto, the maple ,ear was adopted as the national emblem of Canada for use in the decorations for the Prince of Wales’ visit.

In 1914, many Canadian soldiers wore the maple leaf on their military badges, and it was the dominate symbol used by many Canadian regiments serving in the Great World War.
