Note on the two Canadian flags

Until 1965, Canada has two flags, the unofficial Canada Red Ensign and the official Canada Union Jack, which may be misinterpreted as representing Britain. Therefore, any films which display Canada's Canada official flag explicitly are marked accordingly to avoid confusion.
In 1965, Canada adopted the familiar Canada Maple Leaf flag and resolved this issue.
