I have seen the flag in several New Brunswick towns. I was wondering if it's used elsewhere in the country.
Quoting from the Royal Canadian Legion website:
Luc Baronian, 17 June 2005
The crown is the St. Edward Crown, used by the Sovereign. The red maple leaf on the white background is derived from the Canadian coat of arms. Our pledge and motto Memoriaum Eorum Retinebimus (We Will Remember Them), is in the outside circle. It is in Latin, a language generally used on badges, crests and banners of national and military emblems. The word "Legion", in gold, and the background in blue represents the official colours of the Legion. The Poppy is the symbol of remembrance. This badge has been approved by the Sovereign.

Ladies Auxiliary flag

Apart from this flag (referred by them as "legion flag"), there a "legion banner" which is a 1:2 plain blue flag with the legion badge in the middle.
The lady's auxiliaries/auxiliaire féminins use a similarly designed flag
then the legion banner except that the background is pinkish and the badge in
the middle has a maple leaf with silver veins and a serif "A"
superimposed on it.

The logo of this organization, consisting both of Canadians who fought in
Vietnam and US Vietnam veterans who have settled in Canada, has a
Commonwealth-style logo to be found on the Web
