“When I first saw the Ontario flag, I thought it was surreal,” said Majumdar, who is from India. “I’m from a country that was a British colony and we had the red ensign. It was bizarre to see it flown in a modern, diverse country. It feels out of place with the conversation of reconciliation going on now.” The Ontario flag is a version of the pre-1965 Canadian flag, called the Red Ensign, but with an Ontario crest. It features a Union Jack, representing the United Kingdom, and the flag of England sits atop a cluster of three maple leaves. Majumdar sees the flag as a symbol of Ontario and Canada as a colony and says it is time for change.
