Canada Flag Meaning - Red is from the Saint George Cross flag and white from the French royal emblem. During World War I Prime Minister Lester Pearson noticed that most Canadian battalions included a maple leaf in their insignia. He vowed to put the maple leaf on the Canadian flag and fifty years later the maple leaf was placed on the Canadian flag. Even though Canada had been independent of British rule since 1867, prior to this all previous Canada flags had included the British Union Jack.
