I love travelling around the world and I am proud to call myself a Canadian. In such a globalized world, it’s always a bit hard to tell where everyone is from. Here are a few fun stylish ways to show your Canadian pride without sticking a maple leaf or Canadian Flag on your backpack.
Wearing your city’s sports team on a baseball cap is very popular. I was just at the airport and saw so many people sporting their favourite team. Coming from Vancouver, we don’t have a Basketball team, but back in the day, we had the Vancouver Grizzlies. I got my had at Lids as they have a huge variety of hats and other apparel.
These 4 stripes are so iconic to Canada’s history through the Hudson’s Bay Company. The four traditional colours (green, red, yellow, and indigo) were simply colours that were popular and easily produced using good colourfast dyes at the time that the multistripe blanket was introduced around 1800. These four colours are sometimes known as Queen Anne’s colours, since they first became popular during her reign (1702–1714). These colours are still engrained in products at HBC and it’s quite popular.
N/A Stock Company creates these stylish travel tags where you can attach it to your luggage, backpack, duffle bag or even your keys. I love this simple design as it’s not too flashy and those who understand airport codes will know where you’re from. I put them on my carry on bag and I liked that no matter where I go, I can proudly show I’m Canadian.
