Canada's Provincial and Territorial Flag Stamps. Produced to celebrate Canada Day, July 1, 1979, this colourful sheet of stamp depicts the flags of the (then) 12 Provinces and Territories. Since then, Newfoundland and Labrador, here represented by the Union Jack (lower left), has its own new flag, and in 1999 the new territory of Nunavut was created.
