Celebrate Canada 150 in Style!Sophie Pouyanne
About the Logo
The Canada 150 logo was designed to mark the 150th year of Confederation.
Ariana Cuvin, a designer from Toronto, Ontario, designed the logo for Canada 150. She was the winner of a nation-wide competition.
The typeface for the Canada 150 logo was designed by Canadian typeface designer Raymond Larabie. This inclusive typeface supports English, French, and Canada’s Indigenous languages.
Inspiration for the logo comes from the official maple leaf, abstracted into diamonds, or “celebratory gems.” The different colors represent Canada’s thirteen provinces and territories and are reminiscent of Canada’s cultural mosaic, which is part of what makes us so unique.
At the end of June, several celebrations will take place:
- June 21: National Aboriginal Day
- June 24: Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day: Fête nationale du Québec et de la Francophonie canadienne
- June 27: Canadian Multiculturalism Day
- July 1: Canada Day!
Products and Decorations
Kanata offers several options for decorating your products with the Canada 150 logo. Patches come in three colors, and embroidery options are monochrome or full color, stacked or horizontal. An option to fit any blanket!
We also offer products with Canada’s national tartan, designed in 1964 by David Weiser to commemorate the new Canadian flag.
The four colors reflect the maple leaf as its colors change through the seasons: green in spring, gold in early autumn, red at first frost, and brown after falling from the tree.
