Do you know the story behind the design of the official Government of CANADA 150 logo?

Canadian students, nation-wide, were invited to participate in a contest to create the official Government of Canada logo for the 150th anniversary of Confederation.  Ariana Cuvin from Toronto, Ontario created the winning design, chosen from over 300 eligible entries.

Ariana Cuvin winning design, and now the official Government of Canada 150 logo, is composed of a series of diamonds, or “celebratory gems”, arranged in the shape of the iconic maple leaf. The four diamonds at the base represent the four original provinces that formed Confederation in 1867: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Additional diamonds extend out from the base to create nine more points—in total representing the 13 provinces and territories

And there you have it… Thanks Ariana, very cool design!
