Q:

What is the national emblem of Canada?

A:

Canada has several national symbols, but arguably the most well-known is the maple leaf. Other symbols include the Canadian coat of arms, the national flag, the beaver, the National Horse of Canada and the Maple Leaf Tartan.

The maple leaf can be found on the nation's currency, coat of arms and flags. The maple tree was officially named Canada's official tree in 1996. Canada is a leader in the sustainable forest industry, and the symbol of the maple leaf pays homage to that. There are several different species of maple trees, but they are all known for their bright coloring and sweet sap.
