The flag of Ontario is an adaptation of the Canadian Red Ensign, which had been the de facto national flag of Canada from 1867 to 1965. The flag is a red field with the Royal Union Flag in the canton and the Ontario shield of arms in the fly. The coat of arms of Ontario features a green field with three gold maple leaves and above it, a white band with a red St. George's cross.
In 1964, the federal government adopted the Maple Leaf flag as the flag of Canada. Premier John Robarts proposed that Ontario would have its own flag and that it would be a Red Ensign like the previous Canadian flag. It was traditional for jurisdictions around the world with a British system of government and way of life to adapt either a blue or red ensign as a flag, by adding a provincial coat of arms or similar symbol. It was originally intended to place the full Ontario coat of arms on the flag, but this was later reduced to only the shield.
Leaders of both the Ontario Liberal Party and the Ontario New Democratic Party supported the design for the proposed Ontario flag. The only opposition came from Sudbury Liberal Member of Provincial Parliament Elmer Sopha who was fervently opposed to the flag, arguing that it failed to reflect Ontario's diverse character and that it was "a flag of revenge" against the new national flag. However, he was joined by only one other MPP, Liberal Leo Troy, in voting against the flag, and it was passed by the Legislative Assembly on March 17. It went into effect on May 21, 1965. The flag of Manitoba was adopted under similar circumstances.
