The Canadian Flag

A Canadian girl went to a shop to buy a Canadian flag. On seeing the flag, she said something that confused and irritated the shopkeeper:

(Guess what did girl say)

"Show me some more colors."

The Colors Of The Dutch Flag

A Dutchman was explaining the red, white and blue Netherlands flag to an American.

"Our flag is symbolic of our taxes. We get red when we talk about them, white when we get our tax bills, and blue after we pay them."

The Meanings of The Canadian Flag

A Canadian couple was strolling through Hyde Park in London and sat down on a bench next to an elderly Briton.

The Brit noticed their lapel pins sporting the Canadian flag and, to make conversation, said, 'Judging by your pins, you must be Canadians.'

'Indeed we are,' replied the Canadian gentleman.

'I hope you won't mind my asking,' said the Brit, 'but what do the two red bars on your flag represent?'

'Well,' replied the Canadian gentleman, 'one of the bars stands for the courage and hardiness of our people in settling the cold expanses and broad prairies of our country. The other is for the honesty and integrity for which Canadians are known.'

The Brit mulled this over and nodded. Having poor eyesight at his advanced age, and not being familiar with maple leaves, he then asked, 'And what's that six-pointed item in the middle of your flag?'

'Oh, that's to remind us of the six words of our national motto,' the Canadian lady piped up.

The Brit then asked, 'And what are those six words?'

The Canadian smiled and replied, 'They are 'Don't blame us - we're not Americans.'
