About Stamp

The maple leaf has been the centrepiece of the Canadian flag since 1965, and now a stylized version of this same leaf is the centrepiece for the newly-designed, domestic-rate maple leaf definitive, available in a self adhesive coil of 100. The stamp's design consists of a green leaf, visibly in its entirety, overlapping a yellow leaf, which in turn overlaps a red leaf. The use of these three colours shows the metamorphosis of the maple leaf through the seasons.

Recognized nationally and internationally, the maple leaf has become the most prominent of Canadian symbols - and it's worn proudly in the form of pins and badges when Canadians travel abroad. Despite the association between Canada and the maple leaf, it wasn't until 1996 that the maple became Canada's official arboreal emblem.
