The National Flag of America
On 14 June 1777, the Continental Congress passed an act to create an official flag for the new country. This stated that the North American flag will have 13 stripes, alternated with red and white; that the union will consist of 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a constellation. On 3 August 1949, President Harry S. Truman formally proclaimed June 14 as the National Flag Day.
Today, the US flag has 50 stars depicting all the states of the nation. It is a flag that symbolises hope.

The Canadian Flag
The Canadian Flag is an aftereffect of the commitment of many. The way toward picking the flag was a long one that involved national discussion. The national flag of Canada comprises of a red background with a white square at its middle, one of which sits an 11-pointed red maple leaf. The width of the white square is the same as the consolidated width of the two red groups.
Red symbolizes hope and strength. White stands for peace and serenity, thus reflecting lack of bias and the unprejudiced nature of Canadians. It was perhaps taken from the illustrious French symbol, and the maple leaf speaks to Canada's rich social legacy and its resources.
