Or change the stars for leafs.
Not too bad an idea but I think this is a better concept.
What about a return to the classics ?
Ah but if we change the colours and say have 20 -30 stars to represent the northern states that join Canada.
This doesn't count as per the original post but. . . .
Being that the Canadian flag is Red & White.
Or for the Scottish descendants who constitute 16% of the population
Didn't the Comedy Channel up here use that as a gag in a parody of the ad? (Along with the Uncle Sam getting kicked in the butt, which was my fave choice. )
Inclusivity jokes aside, a “modern reimagining” of the Canadian flag would probably try to include some element to represent the Native Americans. Which might be a problem: there are over 600 different officially-recognized tribal governments in Canada so what symbol(s) would you use to somehow represent them all?
Do it medieval style and incorporate everything.
Though I've never even been to Canada, I concur with the people who say that the current, two colour flag looks like shit and the Canadian Union Jack was really nice.
The Maple Leaf doesn't represent Quebec in some way? I was under the impression that the three parts of the OTL maple leaf symbol represented English speakers, Quebecois, and the First Nations peoples.
The image won't post here.
I wasn't aware Quebec was a CSA member.
Wouldnt this belong in the maps and graphics forum?
The thread was made before that time.
No element of the flag is given any official meaning or symbolism. So no, Quebec is not represented on the flag, nor is English Canada, nor First Nations nor anyone else. This was entirely intentional: the flag was designed to be neutral— without any reference to colonial history or linguistic communities— to serve as a bold, new and unifying symbol for Canada.
Yep. This one was put forward in 64.
i always liked this one:
Separate names with a comma.
