Quebec creates its own flag day

QUEBEC - Quebec will create its own annual flag day to fete the Fleur-de-lis, every Jan. 21.

Premier Pauline Marois made the announcement today on the 65th anniversary of the adoption of the Quebec flag, which replaced the Union Jack in the province in 1948.

Quebec will now have an annual event similar to the one created by the federal government in 1996.

On Feb. 15 of that year, just months after the country nearly broke up in the Quebec referendum vote, the Chretien government created the National Flag of Canada Day.
