What is Canada Day?

Canada Day is July 1st and is the day that Canada celebrates being an independent country. On July 1, 1867, the unification of the three North American British colonies: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and the Province of Canada (which was made up of parts of modern-day Ontario, Quebec, and Labrador) became an independent country from England.

On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act formally joined the colonies, creating the unified, semi-independent Dominion of Canada. Essentially, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain.

In 1982, Canada became fully independent. Since 1983, July 1 has been known as “Canada Day.”

What colors are best for decorating for Canada Day?

Canada’s national colors are red and white. The national colours of Canada were declared by King George V in 1921 to be red and white and are most prominently evident on Canada’s national flag.

Red is symbolic of England and white of France, and the colours have been used representatively by those countries in the past. The maple leaf is one of Canada’s national symbols and red is the first leaf colour after spring budding & also the autumn colour of maple leaves.

Here you’ll find inspiration for Canada Day decor ideas such as red and white balloons, red pressed maple leaves, red and white flower ideas for planters and window boxes, red and white tablescapes and more!
