Canadian Flag day names link
The days of the week are named for the Sun (Sunday)and Moon (Monday) and the five visible planets, Mars (Tuesday), Mercury (Wednesday), Jupiter (Thursday), Venus (Friday), and Saturday (Saturn).
Thursday, Thor's day, variation of the Norse god of Thunder, the planet Jupiter. Thus, Old Norse 'þorsdagr' and Middle English 'Thuresday', day of Thor, became Thursday. So Thor is the only superhero to have a day of the week named after him.


The month August was originally named Sextilis in Latin, since it was the sixth month of the 10 month Roman calendar. The name was changed to August in honor of Augustus Caesar in 8 BCE.
