Events of 1965

February 15: After a seemingly-interminable national debate, Canada adopted a new maple leaf flag without the Union Jack. The flag was designed by historian George Stanley and drawn by an artist named Jacques Saint-Cyr.
February 18: The Gambia became independent from the United Kingdom. Its flag depicted the country's namesake river.
July 12: The Congress of Micronesia adopted a national flag. The six stars stood for the six districts of the UN Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.
July 26: The United Kingdom terminated its protectorate over the Maldive Islands. The newly independent country removed the black and white striped hoist from its flag.
August 9: Singapore was expelled from Malaysia.
September 4: Romania made a minor modification to the scroll on its national emblem.
November 11: Rhodesia unilaterally declared independence from the United Kingdom under the light blue ensign it had adopted the previous year. (Not pictured above.) The minority-rule government was illegal under international law and was not recognized as legitimate by any other country.
