If there was no 1867 Confederation, based on international pressures of that era, instead of "0" Canada, today there could be NO Canada?"
The Canadian designer of Uniflag decided to finish what he sketched on a napkin 57 years ago. The first public display was at Citizen Forums in Toronto, Whitby, and Montreal just before the 1995 Quebec Referendum. Uniflag portrays a visual reminder to how Canada was formed as a country with significant elements that reflect Canadian grassroots history.
The Elements of Uniflag
1. Thirteen provinces and territory Entities are represented by a "stylized" white 8- sided octagram. They are grouped in a standard unity circle to merge Canadian generational ancestry, and newcomers from all corners of the earth who now live in the thirteen entities of the Confederation.
2. Three bands that flow to and from the centre are stems, which are drawn from the three-leaf maple sprig on several Canadian coats of arms.
3. Red and white are Canada's 1921 official colours that honour the military and peace.
4. Blue represents Canada's motto; A Mari Usque Ad Mare. This is officially translated as “From Sea to Sea” and “D'un océan à l'autre ”.
5. Gold represents all the different cultures and ways of life under the Canadian Nationality.
