Canada unveils flag for Prince William

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- Canada's prime minister has unveiled a personal flag for Prince William for use while he's in Canada.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office said Wednesday the flag was approved by Queen Elizabeth II and William.

It will be flown for the first time on Thursday when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrive for a nine-day tour of his future realm.

It will be flown at any building during his stay and on all vehicles. It is the first flag to be created by Canada for a member of the Royal Family since 1962, when the queen adopted a personal flag for her own use in Canada.
