FIRST APPEARANCE! Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Personal Canadian Flag! Order today.

It is the foremost flag of the Crown in Canada, and the personal banner of our Head of State. Since its adoption in 1962, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Personal Canadian Flag has adorned countless buildings, ships, aircraft and vehicles during 20 official tours. The Canada-specific Royal flag is only flown in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and it salutes Her Majesty as the Queen of Canada. All heraldic elements have been preserved but redrawn to add movement to the flag, with vivid colours that hint at a shining pride. A fresh, new take on the lion and unicorn supporters of the Arms of Canada completes the meticulously sculpted design. It is a striking reminder of the enduring connection between Canadians and Her Majesty, who, for over six decades, has dutifully embodied the Canadian state.

Design:

Designed by Cathy Bursey-Sabourin, your coin features a coloured rendering of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Personal Canadian Flag. It is depicted in motion, with slightly lighter colours to simulate the effect of sunlight shining through the flag material. The Royal flag consists of the escutcheon of the Arms of Canada in banner form, surmounted by Her Majesty’s device: a blue roundel with the letter “E” surmounted by the Royal Crown and framed by a gold wreath of Tudor roses. Along with a decorative scroll, the lion and unicorn supporters of the Arms are inspired by the stone-carved façade of Rideau Hall in Ottawa, Ontario, and the bronze door plates that adorn The Queen’s Entrance at the official residence of the Governor General of Canada. The obverse features a concentric pattern of maple leaves and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The lion and unicorn are based on the depiction of the Royal arms on the front façade of Rideau Hall. They are also sculpted in bronze as decorative plates that adorn the new formal entrance doors, which, on the occasion of Canada’s 150th anniversary, were officially opened and designated The Queen’s Entrance.Cathy Bursey-Sabourin, The Artist

The layout of the design tells an interesting story. I love the angle the artist took, by combining the flag with heraldic elements that are also inspired by architecture details. It’s a fresh take that stays true to the original.Libby Sim, Product Manager, Royal Canadian Mint

Did you know…
  • Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Personal Canadian Flag was adopted in 1962 and first used in 1964 during a royal visit. While Canada shares its Head of State with 15 other independent Commonwealth Nations, the Canada-specific Royal flag is based on the Arms of Canada and reflects Her Majesty’s title as Queen of Canada
  • It takes precedence over our national flag. Wherever Her Majesty is attending a function or residing in Canada, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Personal Canadian Flag takes precedence over the National Flag of Canada. The Governor General’s flag also takes precedence over Canada’s flag during special functions such as when the Governor General presides over the Canada Day ceremony on Parliament Hill.
  • Canada was one of the first Commonwealth realms to create personal flags for other members of the Royal Family. While personal flags for use in Canada have also been assigned and used by other members of the Royal Family, they are all based on the flag depicted on the coin’s reverse.  In 2011, the Canadian Heraldic Authority unveiled two new Royal flags that were created for His Royal Highness Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, and His Royal Highness Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge. Several other Royal flags have since been created.
