Advertising and Commercial Purposes

The Trade Marks Act protects the National Flag of Canada and the flags of the provinces and territories against unauthorized use. Requests to use the Canadian flag in connection with business activities should be addressed to the Department of Canadian Heritage (attention: Canadian Identity Directorate). Requests to use the provincial or territorial flags should be addressed to the Protocol Office of the province or territory concerned. A flag should always be shown, represented or used in a dignified manner. It should not be defaced by way of printing or figures or masked by other objects, but displayed in a manner which may be described as aloft and free, in which all symbolic parts of the flag can be identified. (Department of Canadian Heritage)

Publicité et utilisation commerciale

La Loi sur les marques de commerce protège le drapeau national du Canada ainsi que les drapeaux des provinces et des territoires contre tout usage non autorisé. Les demandes d'utilisation de ces drapeaux à des fins commerciales doivent être adressées au ministère du Patrimoine canadien (à l'attention de la Direction de l'identité canadienne) pour ce qui est du drapeau national et au bureau de protocole de la province ou du territoire concerné. Un drapeau doit toujours être montré, représenté et utilisé d'une manière digne. Il ne doit pas être dénaturé au moyen d'impressions ou d'illustrations, ni masqué par d'autres objets, mais arboré d'une manière qui puisse être décrite comme « haute et libre », de sorte que tous les symboles qui en font partie puissent être identifiés.
