I really like your first design but I think the green and gold need somthing to seperate them. I think red, the red and white of the Canadian national flag works both with and without the maple leaf in it.

I like the designs but I am still a supporter of the current provincial flag.

Here are some designs I'd like to offer, any one of which would be attractive and which would have either a historical or vexillological basis. Sorry for the rough images - I'll improve upon them in future.

Here are some more proposals, all of which feature Ontario's official floral emblem: The Eastern White Trillium.

The Ontario flag should not have a maple leaf. No other provincial flag does.
To stand out from the Canadian flag, it should not have significant red. Green and white perhaps?
It should have a stylized white tryllium. I prefer one.
Here is my choice:

1. I don't think it's a good argument against maple leaf. Maple leaf is undeniably related to Ontario. See, for example, the Toronto's flag and hockey team. Ontario's coat of arms predates the national one in many decades.
2. Green and gold are Ontario official colors. Loof at this governamental website.

1. Ontario Coat of Arms also has a bear, a deer, a moose and St George cross. The trillium has been used as the common symbol for Ontario for years. Note the Ontario official tree is not the maple, but Eastern White the Pine.

The Fleur de Lys has replaced the maple leaf as the Quebec symbol.

2. Good point.
