I did not realise that the Blue Ensign was the RCN jack. I thought it was the White Ensign?

The above link explains the ensign/jack issue.

Keep up the great work on the petitions, Beaverbrook. A LOT of us are behind you on this one.

Matt, do you know how to create a blogroll script? I'd like to devise one for the petition blog.

Thanks for sharing the link, Matt.
I have a small sewn White Ensign hanging in the corner of my class with the words "Canadian White Ensign" along the hoist.
The site is incorrect in its representation of the blue ensign post 1957 as, along with the red ensign, the harp lost its female representation and the border of the Scottish arms was erroneously reduced to one band.
