— The flag should "be displayed only in a manner befitting this important national symbol; it should not be subjected to indignity or displayed in a position inferior to any other flag or ensign."
— It should always be flown on its own mast; never fly two or more flags on the same mast.
— It should not be used as table cloth or seat cover, or "as a masking for boxes or as a barrier on a dais or platform."
— Nothing should be pinned to or sewn onto the flag. It should not be signed or marked in any way.
— The flag should not be obstructed or touch the ground.
— "When the national flag of Canada is raised or lowered, or when it is carried past in a parade or review, all present should face the flag, men should remove their hats and all should remain silent. Those in uniform should salute."
