Canada’s National Flag is an inspiring sight, and its symbolism is even more powerful when children fly it in the air. It becomes a beacon of hope and freedom that will be carried forward by future generations. Flying the flag is an open display of pride and affection for Canada, a country that sees strength in uniting different cultures, languages and beliefs. To all, Canada’s National Flag says, “We belong.”
The reverse design by Canadian photographer Aoifa Anctil captures this image of a young girl running through a field with the Canadian flag and her brother following close behind. The horizon in the distance and the great expanse of sky convey the vast landscapes that characterize Canada. Vibrant red and white give the flag movement and highlight its design. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt with “20 DOLLARS” and “ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA” engraved along the outer edge of the coin.
