Our flag appears on several 39-cent definitives, replacing the Parliament Buildings theme of previous years. Sheets of 100 stamps and packs of 10 and 25 feature the flag against a blue, cloudy sky; a one-colour variation appears on the roll stamp and stamps showing the flag against different coloured backgrounds appear in the vending booklet. The new "Quick Sticks" self-adhesive flag stamp depicts the flag flying against a typical western Canadian prairie background; it's available only in packs of 12 stamps. Toronto designers Gottschalk + Ash International created all these flag designs. This firm designed last year's "Quick Sticks" Stamp Pack as well as numerous other Canadian stamps.
