February 15 is National Flag of Canada Day.
The 150th anniversary of Confederation is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the powerful symbol of the Canadian identity.
Created by Ariana Cuvin from Toronto, Ontario,the logo is composed of a series of diamonds, or “celebratory gems”, arranged in the shape of the iconic maple leaf.
The four diamonds at the base represent the four original provinces that formed Confederation in 1867: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Additional diamonds extend out from the base to create nine more points—in total representing the 13 provinces and territories.
