One of the longest-running Saint Patrick's Day parades in North America occurs each year in Montreal having been held without interruption since 1824. In 2020 the parade is post-poned to a later date. 


The flag of Montreal has a shamrock in the bottom right as a symbol of Irish heritage as one of the founding peoples.
