The beaver has a long history in Canada as both commodity and cultural icon. The Hurons honoured the beaver hundreds of years ago as the totem of their tribe. Native peoples used the beaver emblem to sign treaties with the first colonists. Since then the beaver has appeared in the heraldic bearings of Québec City and Montreal and even marked Canada's first postage stamp. The beaver coin design was created by Canadian artist G.E. Kruger Gray and was first used in 1937.

History of the Canadian Maple Leaf

In 1848, a literary publication from Toronto is known to have described a “maple leaf” as Canada’s own preferred emblem. In 1858, The “Prince of Wales' Royal Canadian Regiment of Foot 100th” had a badge with a maple leaf emblem on it. In the same year, silver coinage depicted two maple branches surrounding the date and value.

In 1860 when Prince of Wales paid a visit to Toronto, the citizens were asked to display maple leaf pins. The Governor General’s flag, which was the earliest official flag, had some maple leaves picture in the flag’s center. The year was 1870. From 1876 onwards, the maple leaf began to appear on every Canadian coin. Canadians who were serving in the South African Boer War wore maple leaf Insignia in 1899. The emblem of maple leaf had a deep influence on the Canadians in both World War I and World War II. The Canadian troops wore regimental badges bearing the maple leaf in 1939 during World War II. Finally the maple leaf flag came to be officially adopted on October 22, 1964 by the Parliament. [1]
