The National Flag of Canada

Here is my rendering of the maple leaf flag of Canada, officially called the National Flag of Canada.

It was my great pleasure to spend many hours over this artwork in order to honour the country in which the city, Vancouver, will hold the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

This artwork will be my gift to the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper and with it I wish the host country every success.

The Maple leaf flag was inaugurated in 1965 as Canada's first national flag.

Canadians are very proud of the struggle that led to the creation of their national flag and so they fly it with dignity.

I come from Greece, the country which gave birth to the Olympic idea and where the first Olympic Games were held ancient Olympia in 776 BC.
