The largest Canadian flag ever made was unveiled today in Stanley Park today.
Just in time for Canada’s 150th birthday, the flag will be on display at the Brockton Oval on Canada Day.
The flag is 140 metres in length and 70 metres in height, with a total area of 9900 square metres, which reflects the total area of Canada at a scale of 1 to 1,000,000.

“Every Canadian has something to contribute to this great nation,”said the flag’s creator Mr. Zhen Zhong Li.”And I wanted to create a visual symbol commensurate with our huge Canadian spirit.”
“This flag reflects Canada’s inclusiveness, diversity, and generosity,” he added.
Because of the flag’s large size, it was a challenge to find a space for the public to view it.
Local MP Don Davies and the Vancouver Park Board both had a hand in making sure the flag could be put on display at Brockton Oval.
“Canada Day is a time to reflect on our shared history and look forward to the future with hope and optimism,” said Davies. “This initiative to create a colossal symbol of our nation was something that we just had to support.
If you want to see the largest Canadian flag ever, it will be available for public viewing all day July 1, at the Brockton Oval in Stanley Park, at 1151 Stanley Park Drive, Vancouver, BC.
