On April 14, 2016 the Nishaan Sahib was Officially raised in Ontario’s Parliament. First Time ever in History, The Sikh Flag was raised in any Parliament or Legislature.
Ontario NDP’s Deputy Leader Jagmeet Singh presented and passed unanimously a motion calling on the Legislative Assembly to fly the Sikh Flag or Nishaan Sahib outside of Queen’s Park.
“This marks the first time in Ontario’s history and possibly the first time in any Parliament or Legislature in the world that the Nishaan Sahib was raised.”
The flag raising ceremony was followed by the annual Sikh Heritage Month Queen’s Park reception in the Legislature hosted by the Sikh Heritage Month Foundation.
Lets celebrate this moment together!
