The Design:

You coin’s design serves as a proud reminder of how Canadians from Atlantic Canada to British Columbia, and up to the northernmost tip of Nunavut, are all brought together under this internationally renowned national banner. Framed within a map of Canada, the flag is beautifully brought to life thanks to the use of red and white colour application that recreate its famous colours and, of course, the iconic maple leaf.


Did You Know?

• The adoption of a national flag was proposed as far back as the late nineteenth century, but to no avail–that is, until the idea was raised again in 1964 by Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson.
 •  At the stroke of noon on February 15, 1965, the Canadian Red Ensign (Canada’s previous flag) was lowered on Parliament Hill and replaced by the National Flag of Canada.
 •  The official way to describe it is as a red flag with a white square in its centre, which isadorned with a red maple leaf.
 •  The design is symmetrical–if you fold the flag from one red edge to the other, both halves should be the same!
 •  The maple leaf has long been used as a symbol for this country; meanwhile, red and white were featured prominently in the Canadian coat of arms, as proclaimed by King George V in 1921. Official flag etiquette requires that the National Flag of Canada never touch the ground.
