Congratulations to Captain Brian on yet another excellent contribution to TI LIFE!
A footnote to this article: while the Maple Leaf Flag was not official adopted until the following February, on 3 June 1964, the Hall Corporation of Canada Tanker GULF TRANSPORT hoisted a facsimile thereof, marking the first occasion on which the future national flag was displayed on a Canadian merchant vessel. This representation may not have been identical to the final version, however, as one early proposal featured blue borders (symbolizing "sea-to-sea") rather than the red borders ultimately adopted.
