The one with the Union Jack in the canton is the old version, described on The Book of Flags by Campbell & Evans; the one with the Canadian flag at the canton is the current version, described in

Note 1: Although Campbell & Evans showed the badge with a red maple leaf, that on the website shows it with a yellow leaf; I use the latter for both flags, because if the Canadian Red Ensign changed the leaf colour from green to red, and the current Canadian flag keeps the red leaf, it would be illogical for the cadets to 'revert' a red leaf back to something else. Therefore I believe Campbell & Evans made a silly mistake regarding the air cadet badge's leaf colour.

Note 2: The website shows the ensign with its badge at the extreme lower fly. I prefer to render it the traditional British way, i.e. badge at the centre of the fly.

Note 3: The website also shows other banners and standards.

The insignia of HRH Prince Phillip Duke of Edinburgh are found on this banner because His Royal Highness is the Air Chief Marshal of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. The insignia on the right is the insignia found on the Air Cadet ensign, however, it was the badge of the fore- runner of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets - Air Cadets Canada. The central insignia is the badge of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets.

For every Air Cadet Squadron, the 000 will have the unit's number, and I believe that instead of word "SQUADRON BANNER" the unit's name will be placed. Therefore, every unit will have their own unique Squadron Banner.
