The Canadian flag is a red flag with a white square in a maple leaf red stylized eleven points.

The official description of the design of the Canadian flag, is derived from the Royal Proclamation of 1965, and describes the emblem as « a red flag that the proportions are two by length and a wide, white square in the center, top width adjoining the shaft and bearing a single red maple leaf. « According to this description, the width of each red stripe is thus half that of the white square. Although the Proclamation does not mention the type of maple leaf to use, the official drawing shows a sheet 11 points.
