Did You Know there's an Official Flag for Canada Day?

Nineteen year old Ariana Cuvin, a student in the University of Waterloo's global business and digital arts program designed the sesquicentennial official emblem.

Cuvin's design was chosen as Canada's emblem because of it's simple reflection of the country's diversity and unity.

The emblem consists of 13 multiple colored diamonds that form a Maple Leaf. The four original provinces of Canada (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia) are represented at the diamond's base, while the additional diamonds represent the rest of Canada's provinces and territories.

  1. Happy 150 birthday, Canada! Loved the video, Barbara. Though I was born and live in the U.S.A., I have ancestors from Canada on both sides of my family (from Quebec and from Toronto), so I feel a certain pride and kinship to my Canadian friends and family. In fact, I spent many years living right across Lake Ontario from you in Rochester, NY. :-)

    1. For goodness sakes you weren't far from us at all! Very cool about your ancestral Canadian connection. I have several 2 times great uncles who settled in California and Michigan; We're all connected in some way aren't we 😀
