Canadian Thanksgiving Day

If the United States has a Thanksgiving Day, Canada should have one, too. And if I design a flag for the United States Thanksgiving Day, I should design one for Canadian Thanksgiving Day.

The flag's proportions are 1:2, the most common flag proportions in Canada. The colours of the flag are the Canadian colours, red and white. The partial cross represents separation from England, and is in the shape of a T, for thanksgiving. A representation of the constellation Orion appears on the hoist side of the flag, symbolising harvest time. The constellation on this flag is made of thirteen stars, representing the thriteen Canadian provinces and major territories.
