Words become art, as the English and French words form the familiar shapes that define the Canadian flag—two icons woven into the very fabric of our nation, our identity, and our hearts.

Canadian_Flag.jpgClever Design!
Words become art on this outstanding coin design by Tony Bianco, where a luminous proof finish highlights the engraved outline of Canada’s national flag as it billows in the breeze. Upon closer inspection, the iconic red bands and 11-point maple leaf are shaped by the English and French lyrics to O Canada. This colorful, text-based rendering was made possible by colored micro-sized lettering, which ensures every letter is defined despite their diminutive size!

The Canadian National Flag
On February 15, 1965 Canada’s new flag was raised for the first time in an official ceremony on Parliament Hill. The Canadian flag that we know today was conceived with the planning for the centennial celebrations of 1967. Numerous experts joined a parliamentary committee and after months of reviewing numerous proposals, a new design was selected to represent Canada. It incorporates red and white, Canada’s national colors that had been proclaimed in 1921. Fittingly the maple leaf, recognized as a symbol of Canada since the early days of the fur trade, emerged as the most appropriate emblem. In 2015 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of this standard of a great and sovereign nation, Canada’s national flag.

Immediately recognizable the world over, no other symbol is as synonymous with Canada as its distinctive red-and-white maple leaf flag. To Canadians at home and abroad, the red maple leaf unites and instills a sense of belonging regardless of the myriad different cultures, languages and beliefs that comprise the savory stew that is Canada. As the National Flag of Canada celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015, the Royal Canadian Mint proudly pays tribute to this beloved national symbol.
