As of Sunday, 5 May 2013, the Royal Canadian Navy will revert to the Commonwealth tradition of wearing a white ensign, with the national flag as the canton, and the national flag as the jack.

These are the two jacks used by the Canadian Forces.

(1) The Canadian Forces Naval Jack, which is also the Maritime Command Flag (i.e., the flag of Canada's navy) when flown ashore.

(2) The Canadian Forces Auxiliary Vessels Jack.

I believe the Canadian Coast Guard also has a distinctive jack, but I have never got a good look at it.
Dean Tiegs - 19 June 1998


Canadian Naval Jack. This is also the flag of the Canadian Maritime Forces. The flag is 1:2, white with the Canadian flag in the canton (quarter of the area) and the Maritime Forces badge in blue in the fly (the badge comprises a fouled anchor with the flukes at 90 degrees to the top bar, the eagle of the air force and a naval coronet).

Canadian Auxiliary Jack. The flag is 1:2, navy blue with the Canadian flag in the canton (quarter of the area) and the Maritime Forces badge in white in the fly.
Graham Bartram - 14 August 1999


There has been ongoing television coverage today in the United Kingdom of the unfolding drama and tragedy of the Canadian submarine HMCS Chicoutimi, which is experiencing severe engineering difficulties on its maiden voyage from the Barrow-in-Furness shipyards, which allegedly renovated the former HMS Upholder. BBC 1 News in the North West showed footage from a Canadian television documentary of the similar voyage of HMCS Windsor, which experienced many of the same difficulties as her sister ship is now doing, although not thankfully without the tragic consequences which have so far unfolded.

In the aforementioned documentary there were several shots of Windsor's jack, which was quite different from the way this flag is depicted above. Whereas we have a small solid dark blue emblem of the Canadian Defence Forces in the fly, the jack flown by Windsor had this same emblem but in a much larger size, in a light blue color, and outline form rather than solid.
