The drive to represent Canada has often focused on the land. Paintings of landscapes that felt wild and impossible to tame were reduced to the single Maple Leaf, adopted in 1965 as the centrepiece of the country’s national flag. This exhibition examines that iconic symbol as more than just an internationally recognizable sign of Canada – it investigates the layers of meaning now held within that Maple Leaf – and what it says about the complexities of Canadian national identity today.
