Combined with the #StayAtHome hashtag, Canadians are using the flag as a way of promote social distancing while still feeling connected.
To show my thanks solidarity with fellow Canadian of this great country. I’m flying my flag with a great sense of pride during this crisis! #StayHomeCanada #StayHomeSavesLives #myottawa #ottnews pic.twitter.com/lgKfPjxzsj— SkiAmigoGriff (@photogriffDOTca) March 26, 2020
Many are also using it as a way to show support for frontline healthcare workers during the pandemic.
July 1 is still way off but with so many flags up, it's beginning to look a lot like Canada's birthday.
Among other gestures of hope and solidarity, people have been cheering for frontline workers from their balconies and having concerts from them, too, Niagara Falls lit up with hearts and there's a caremongering initiative going around.
