B.C. Day

British Columbia Day is celebrated on the first Monday of August and is a day off for many people. Here are just a few interesting facts about our Province I found here
These are some Symbols of our Province:

The Stellar Jay
Western Red Cedar
Pacific Dogwood Blossom
Jade Mineral

The most important Symbol of BC is the Union Flag! The top part of the flag consists of a union flag with a crown in the center. These represent the colonial links with the country and monarch of the United Kingdom. The lower part of the flag consists of a setting sun on a background of blue and white waves.
As we celebrate B.C. Day, remember to celebrate what this Province means to us!
