The design by Canadian artist Margaret Best presents the classic Canadian maple. From a novel angle, looking upward at the trunk and tree canopy from below. The lower half of the image is dominated by the gnarled trunk of a massive maple tree. Its thick branches reach upward and outward toward the canopy which, in the perspective of the image, appears far above the viewer, against the sky.Trunk, branches, and leaves are rendered in textural relief, to reinforce the images sense of height and depth. To perch on a moss-covered boulder in the heart of the woods, lean against the broad trunk of a towering sugar maple. And gaze up at the green vault above: this is to experience the Canadian forest at its finest. Idling away a few careless moments in the presence of this wise old species allows us to journey backward in our own memories, to explore a daydreamed future, and to rest in the serenity of the present. Connects land and sky, shade and light, tree and tree, human and heavens. In a land dominated by vast woodlands, it is no surprise that the maple is considered a national treasure and symbol of a people. It has played a key role in Canadas development as a nation. From the earliest Native Americans. The settlers and, ultimately, those who manage todays forestry and tourism industries, Canadians have always found the maple. To be a beautiful and important resource.
For approximately 200 years, the maple leaf symbol has been associated specifically with Canada and Canadians. In 1965, the maple leaf became the centerpiece of Canadas most important national emblem - the Canadian flag. On April 25, 1996, the Deputy Registrar of Canada proclaimed the maple tree. Representing the 10 species found in Canada the countrys official arboreal emblem, citing the maple leafs historical role as a symbol of national identity, the important part the maple has played in the countrys historical and commercial development, its aesthetic importance to Canadians, and the trees role as an important environmentally sustainable economic resource.
