Description:
The Flag of the Governor General of Canada (officially a "Standard") was adopted in 1981. It features Canada's royal crest; a crowned lion holding a red maple leaf in its paw, standing on a wreath of the official colours of Canada (red and white), on a blue background. The flag differs from the flags of Governors-General in the other Commonwealth Realms with governors-general (besides New Zealand), in that the flag does not feature the country's name, and the inclusion of the maple leaf and wreath as national symbols. Prior to 1981, the Canadian Governor General's flag was similar to the other realm governors'; the lion crest (the royal crest of the United Kingdom), with the name of the country below being the only national marker.

The flag takes precedence over the National Flag, but not over the Royal Standard, or the flag of a Lieutenant Governor of a province at the Lieutenant Governor's residence, or on occasion when the Lieutenant Governor is performing his duties as the Queen's representative in the province.

The flag is flown from the Governor General's official residences, Rideau Hall and La Citadelle, and any other building the Governor General is visiting. The flag may also be flown from the Governor General's car. On overseas visits, the National Flag is used as a more recognizable Canadian symbol.
