Provincial Flags

Like Canada has a national flag, and like the individual states of the United States have their own flag, each Canadian province has its' own flag. I obtained these graphics from Wild-Guy's Canada page.

At many official functions in Canada the federal and the provincial flags are placed in line according to the date of the entry of the provinces into Confederation. There for the flags would be placed in order of Ontario (1867), Quebec (1867), Nova Scotia (1867), New Brunswick (1867), Manitoba (1870), British Columbia (1871), Prince Edward Island (1873), Saskatchewan (1905), Alberta (1905), and Newfoundland (1949). it is customary to fly as well the flags of the Territories which are placed in alphabetical order, Northwest Territories first followed by Yukon.

The place of honour is always given to the national flag of Canada, which is usually displayed at the extreme left (as seen by the spectators), followed by the flag of the host province, then the flags of the other provinces according to the date mentioned above. It is also correct to repeat Canada's flag at the other end.

I however have broke with tradition and have placed the flags by geographical location of the provinces from east to west followed by the Territories in the same order.
