Symbols of Canada

Why does our flag have a maple leaf? What is the provincial flower of Nova Scotia? What does the Nunavut flag look like? The answers to these questions – and many others – are contained in the new edition of this bestselling publication. A country’s symbols represent its heritage, goals and very identity.

Canada’s symbols are presented here in an attractive and unique format, with full-colour renditions of flags, coats of arms, floral emblems and more. Short histories of each province and territory and its symbols provide interesting background information.

An attractive wall poster is included, and depicts flags, flowers and other symbols, as well as pictures of provincial legislatures. This double-sided poster features French on one side and English on the other.
Symbols of Canada

In addition to the symbols of Canada, this useful publication also contains summary information about each province and territory: its population, its land mass and its history.

No collection, personal or professional, is complete without a copy of the updated Symbols of Canada.

Please note: the folded poster is no longer available on its own.
