Our Side of the Mountain
The Canadian flag means a lot to me. If we didn’t have freedom Canada would not be a very nice place to live. We would all have to answer to a higher person, and do what they told us to do. That is why Canadians went to war for us, so we could have the freedom to do what we want. We can learn and have peace, and the freedom to make our own decisions. I salute the soldiers for what they did for our country. If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t have Canadian citizenship. It makes me so happy to honor them for what they did for us. I raise the flag to honor them. The new flag was born on February 15, 1965. I’m so proud of the new flag. It represents our colors, red and white, and our famous maple leaf. It shows the world that we are our own country. We are well known and respected around the world for what we have done for others.
