For Canada Day this year I painted some Canadian flag rocks. Some will be hidden when we go for our daycations and of course some will take a prominent place in the garden.
I made a small template of a maple leaf to trace onto some rocks that were painted white. And then added red stripes on each side of the rock.
Another painted Canadian flag I made a long time ago used 3 flat pieces of rock.
Your flag size is only limited by the size of the stones you use. How about using three patio stones? or a lot of little ones.
I have frequently seen my images used on other sites with no link back. I realize you are only trying to share an idea, but if you have “borrowed” one of my images please give a link back. At least I put a watermark on my images to prove they are mine.

I also updated my version of a trillium rock, and added the word Ontario to it. The original ones were painted to take on a trip to Victoria, British Columbia and hide.
Another Canadian project I finished off in time to display on Canada Day was a spoon chime made with all the souvenir spoons I have from across Canada.
Make a bit of Canadian flag whimsy by following these directions.
I hide lots of my rocks. They are for you to keep or rehide. You can even take a photo and share it with me or the Facebook group mentioned on the back of the rock. Please sign here, up to 2020 or 2021 or use the contact form if you see/find/keep/rehide one of them. Thanks in advance. I love knowing if my rocks are found and where they end up.
Be sure to have a look at my rock projects and see all the other types of rocks I’ve painted.
Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends.
