Canada is blessed with a bounty of natural diversity; from the glacial glory in the farthest reaches of the north, to the fruitful soil of the south, to the life-giving waterways located in between. For centuries, Canadians have embraced this bounty; building upon nature's foundations. The result is countless attractions that draw millions of visitors to various parts of the country each year.
Canadian Tulip Festival, Ontario
In gratitude for shelter and liberation efforts during the Second World War, the Netherlands' royal family presented Ottawa with a gift of 100,000 tulip bulbs. The annual blooming of these bulbs has become a beautiful and symbolic event that has grown over the years in size and magnificence. In 1953, the first Canadian Tulip Festival was held, and today it's the largest of its kind in the world.
About the Stamp
This stamp featured in the Tourist Attractions set was designed by Bradbury Design of Regina, and a total of nine photographers supplied images capturing the essence of each attraction. Award-winning design principal Catharine Bradbury and associate designer Jennifer Hood saw this project as a means of promoting the beauty and diversity of Canadian tourist attractions to American and international communities.
