 Red and Blue Ensigns (Canada)
In the minutes of the joint committee appointed to design a national flag (1945-6), one of the witnesses stated that it was a common belief in Canada that only Nova Scotia had a provincial flag.

The witness stated that this belief was technically incorrect, and that all the provinces were legally entitled to use banners of their arms as provincial flags--they just chose not to do so.
The arms of Canada were changed to nearly their present pattern in 1921 and the flag badge amended accordingly.
