Some information from "The Flags of Canada - chapter IV - the Canadian Ensigns" by Alistair B. Fraser.
A royal proclamation establishes the National Flag of Canada, the current
maple leaf flag. The Canadian Red and Blue Ensigns and Royal Canadian Navy use of the White Ensign
go out of official use.
Dean Tiegs - 21 December 1997
The winning design in the competition to create a distinctive Canadian flag was actually based on the flag of the Royal Military College (http://www.rmc.ca) and was submitted by one of the academic staff of the College at that time.
