The Maple Leaf Flag

Today is the 49th birthday of the Canadian maple leaf flag.

It’s simple yet elegant.  There’s no nationalism in the symbol of the maple leaf; just a reminder of the natural beauty of the vast land.  It’s also unique.  A lot of other countries use stars or stripes, but the stylized red leaf leaves no doubt as to where it’s from.
