The words spoken that day by Maurice Bourget, Speaker of the Senate, give further symbolic meaning to the flag: "The flag is the symbol of the unity of the nation, because he is without a shadow of a doubt all the citizens of Canada without distinction of race, language, belief or opinion ". Second country in the world by area, Canada occupies most of North America. It runs east to west from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and northward to the Arctic Ocean and shares land borders with the United States to the south and northwest (Alaska). Originally occupied by indigenous peoples, the country was born from the union of three British colonies, which were French colonies at the time of New France.
