About Stamp

In all countries, the national flag is the single most important symbol of individuality and identity. Canada Post Corporation is pround to continue the tradition of featuring the Maple Leaf Flag on the 40-cent first class rate definitive stamp. Accepted as a Canadian symbol long before Confederation, the Maple Leaf gained acceptance over the years through its use by national organizations and the military. The new "Quick Sticks" self-adhesive Flag stamp depicts our Flag flying against a seacoast background. It is available only in packs of 12 stamps. Toronto designers Gottschalk + Ash International were responsible for all of the Flag stamp designs. This firm has created many other Canadian stamp designs including last year's "Quick Sticks" stamp pack.
