Emblem of a Nation's Spirit
From backpackers in Berlin to peacekeepers in Pakistan, Canadians are immediately identifiable by a singular image they faithfully sport on pins, badges and appliques: the red maple leaf.
This lyrical cipher has symbolized Canada and Canadians for nearly three hundred years. Historians generally recognize the adoption of the maple leaf by Quebe's Societe Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Montreal in 1836 as the first official use of the symbol to represent an element of Canadian culture.
This symbol was soon popularized in print, songs and in the small markers--such as lapel pins--with which Canadian residents of various origins honored their homelands. The English had their roses, the Scots their thistle, the Irish their shamrocks, and the French their fleur-de-lis--and native-born Canadians quickly chose the prosaic maple leaf.
The idea of including the maple leaf on Canada's national flag took root with Lester B. Pearson in World War I, when he noted that every Canadian battalion had included some form of the maple leaf in its insignia. Fifty years later, in 1965, under his leadership as prime minister, Canada's famous red-and-white maple leaf flag was born.
In addition to the maple leaf's presence on various provincial flags and coats of arms, the country's coinage has featured maple leaves, wreaths and bough in various forms for most of Canada's history. In fact, the maple leaf was present on all Canadian coins from 1876 to 1901, and on Canadian pennies until 2012.
