'O Canada' - Happy Canada Day!
Why the Maple Leaf?
It was during the First World War — where the maple leaf symbol was used as the cap badge worn by members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force — that it became the most widely recognized emblem of the nation. Most poignantly, it is a single maple leaf that is carved upon many of the headstones of Canadian service men and women who gave their lives in the 2 world wars. For many, ever since, the maple leaf has been a shared symbol of pride, courage and loyalty.
