The flag of Canada, also known as the Canadian Maple Leaf flag, features a bright red field with a white square in the center. Inside the white square lies a stylized, 11-pointed bright red maple leaf. The bright red symbolizes the courage, sacrifice, and dedication of all Canadians, while the white signifies peace and honesty.
The maple leaf itself is an iconic symbol of Canada. It represents the country’s extensive natural beauty, resources, and its people’s national pride and unity. The 11 points of the maple leaf represent Canada’s 10 provinces. Including one territory also emphasizes the nation’s diverse and unified identity.
