By Simon Rogers and Andrew Rossman | February 19, 2018 13:21:52This is the first in a series of stories about Canada’s story.
This time, we look at how the flag first got here.
In 1854, British explorer John Brown embarked on a voyage across the Atlantic and into the heart of the Americas.
The journey was one of the most extraordinary feats of exploration that humanity had ever undertaken.
In fact, it was the first time a human being travelled in outer space, travelling to the farthest point on Earth from the centre of the globe.
The British explorer was accompanied by a crew of 30 men and women, including his mother, a Scottish princess, a sailor, a physician, and a botanist.
The voyage, and Brown’s experience of the world, were legendary.
He would later describe the journey as a ‘fantastic adventure’.
But Brown’s voyage was just the beginning.
In 1772, he was attacked by a French warship, and lost his life.
He was only the second man to die on a European voyage when his ship was sunk in 1806 by a German steamer, a battle that would leave his body buried for years.
Now, nearly 150 years later, the Canadian flag is the world’s symbol.
But for the Canadians, who took pride in the fact that their country was a land of freedom, the country they had fought for was an enemy.
The first Canadian flagThe flag was officially adopted in 1874, but it was not until 1916 that the Canadian government officially adopted the flag.
It was this flag that inspired the first Canadian prime minister to make a public statement.
Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, in the midst of the Great War, was asked to produce a national flag, and he proposed the Canadian National Flag.
It would be a national symbol, but he did not make it official until 1917.
As the war raged on, it became increasingly clear that the war was losing momentum, and many Canadians began to see Canada as an enemy of the British Empire.
King’s proclamation that “We are opposed to the use of our flag, nor to any other flag, except that which is in the hands of the Canadian people,” had an impact.
By the time of the Second World War, the flag was no longer seen as a symbol of freedom.
In 1939, it fell out of favour with the Canadian military.
However, it did not stop the Canadians from supporting the Allies, including the United States.
Canada became an ally in the Cold WarThe Cold War was the largest conflict in human history, with the Soviet Union and its allies the United Kingdom, France and Italy, as well as Nazi Germany, all threatening the lives of millions of people.
In 1939, the British government of Prime Minister William Gladstone, in response to growing tensions between the United Nations and the Soviet government, ordered that the flag of Canada should be flown at half mast.
The move was not only symbolic, but also a move towards a more equal and democratic society.
The US had not recognised the independence of the newly independent Soviet Union, and the US was unwilling to make concessions to the USSR to win the Cold war.
In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt made a speech that set the tone for his presidency.
He described Canada as the ‘friend of freedom’ and his message resonated with the American people.
In 1942, Canada joined the Allies in the invasion of Nazi Germany and was sent into the battle of Vimy Ridge in 1943.
In 1944, Canada participated in the Battle of the Bulge, a major battle that saw the Allies push the German Army back to their own lines.
The Allies lost the battle, but Britain and France were left with a much larger and stronger German Army, and they were able to continue their fight against the Soviet forces.
The Canadians were proud to have fought in the warThe war did not end there.
After the war, many Canadian families and communities were devastated by the loss of their loved ones, including many who were Canadian citizens.
However, the American government, as it looked after the interests of the country, allowed Canadian families to return home.
The Canadian flag was adopted as the flag for the country in 1946.
This flag became the national symbol of Canada for decades, but some of its symbolism is not as well known.
For instance, there are many people who believe the flag should not be flown on the Canadian embassy in London.
The Canadian embassy is the home of the Royal Canadian Legion, the world-famous veterans’ organisation.
And it was only a matter of time before the flag would be flown there.
In the late 1980s, the Liberal government of Pierre Trudeau, who was Prime Minister from 1987 to 1993, began to look to change the symbol.
In 1987, a Liberal government was formed that included the prime minister, his cabinet, and his minister of culture, the Hon. Jean Chrétien. Chrét
