Description

Gosling plant, pasque-flower, windflower and more, Manitoba's floral emblem, the prairie crocus, is a very early flowering beauty that goes by many names. Fluffy and fuzzy, this purple-coloured sign of spring became the official flower in 1906, when it was suggested by the Manitoba Horticultural Society and put to a vote among the province's schoolchildren.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan features a colour portrait of the official floral emblem of Manitoba, the prairie crocus (Pulsatilla ludoviciana). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
