The maple leaf
As Canada's national emblem, the maple leaf generates pride and a sense of belonging, and is also recognized all over the world. It gives the impression of taking flight, symbolizing daring invention and our sights set on the future, ready to push the boundaries of ingenuity and innovation.
The star represents space and symbolizes brilliance, intelligence, and expertise. Its repetition embodies the strength of the community, which includes all those involved in the Canadian space program – industry, scientists, academia, government, and STEM organizations.
