Prior to 1965, this flag was the de facto national flag of Canada. Lengthy debates ensued searching for a more official and unique Canadian national flag, with the federal government eventually replacing the Red Ensign with the current maple leaf Canadian flag in 1965. This decision wasn't popular among some Canadians, including many Ontarians. The premier of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives at the time proposed Ontario have its own flag and that flag be the Red Ensign. It was tradition for jurisdictions around the world with a British government system to adapt either a blue or red ensign as a flag, with the addition of a local coat of arms or some other symbol. The premier felt the Ensign was an important symbol that reflected Ontario's British heritage and sacrifices Canadian troops made under the Red Ensign, stating the Ontario flag was part of our history. The Ontario Provincial Flag officially went into effect on May 21, 1965.

NOTE: To get the maximum life out of your flag, do not expose to freezing rain, heavy snow, or unusually high winds. It is recommended to bring the flag inside during extreme weather. While storing your Ontario Flag, make sure it is completely dry before putting it away. Do not place the flag where it can touch or whip against a hard or rough surface; for example, wire, brick, branches, cables, etc. Even a small tear can cause larger damage to the flag. If placing the flag on a pole (not included), ensure the pole is free of heavy dirt, rust, or corrosion. This can also cause damage to the flag.
