---- What is the correct use of rel=hreflang and rel=canonical?

Hopefully google won't consider this as duplicate content due to the alternate tag.
No problem on the explaining. They won't consider it a duplicate in a "bad duplicate" way at least with the alternate on there, but they'll likely just ignore the canonical and decide what the canonical should be on their own like they would if it wasn't there cause you really can't have 3 alternates all be the canonical version of the page which is what you're saying by setting each one as the canonical of itself.
