Maple Leaf
Famous Canadian Symbol
The maple leaf is the most known symbol of Canada. At the beginning of the eighteenth century, the maple leaf had been adopted as a symbol to represent the country. The maple leaf slowly caught on. From 1876-1901, it appeared on all Canadian coins, and remained on the penny after 1901-2013. During the First World War, badges were based on a maple leaf design. The maple leaf finally became the central national symbol in 1965. The maple leaf is currently used on the Canadian flag, logos of various Canadian-based companies and the logos of Canadian sports teams. Examples are Air Canada, General Motors Canada, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Wendy's Canada.
