Canada Flag History
The Canadian flag or otherwise known as the Maple Leaf or if translated in French ‘the one-leafed’ consists of a red field with a white square in the centre which features a red 11-pointed maple leaf.
There was no official Canada flag hence a committee was formed in 1964 to debate and bring about a flag change. The Union Flag was replaced by the Maple Leaf design by George Stanley. This was based on the flag of the Royal Military College of Canada. This flag is now celebrated annually in the form of National Flag of Canada Day. Whilst there are many different flags created for Canadian officials, government, and military the maple leaf motif is always used in some fashion.

Czech Republican Flag History
The national flag of the Czech Republic is the same as the flag of former Czechoslovakia. Upon the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic kept the Czechoslovak flag while Slovakia adopted its own flag. The first flag of Czechoslovakia was based on the flag of Bohemia and was white over red.
This was almost identical to the flag of Poland (only the proportion was different), so a blue triangle was added at the hoist in 1920. The flag was banned by the Nazis in 1939, and a horizontal tricolour of white, red, and blue was enforced. The 1939 flag was restored in 1945.
China Flag History
The flag of China, officially the National Flag of the People’s Republic of China and also known as the Five-starred Red Flag, is a Chinese red field charged in the canton (upper corner nearest the flagpole) with five golden stars. The design features one large star, with four smaller stars in a semicircle set off towards the fly. The red represents the revolution; the five stars and their relationship represent the unity of the Chinese people under the leadership of the Communist Party of China.
The first flag was hoisted by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) on a pole overlooking Beijing’s Tiananmen Square on 1 October 1949, at a ceremony announcing the establishment of the People’s Republic of China. Other flags used in the People’s Republic use a red background to symbolize the revolution in conjunction with other symbols.
