Feuille d'érable - p4g - Maple Leaf
[Feuille d'érable - p4g - Maple Leaf]

"Feuille d'érable - p4g - Maple Leaf" by François Brisse : Logo of the Canadian National Committee for Crystallography (CNCC)

On the suggestion of Professor T. Stanley Cameron of Dalhousie University, the CNCC has based its logo on a crystallographic artwork produced by François Brisse (then, as now, of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Montreal). This motif was also originally used for the 1981 IUCr 12th Congress in Ottawa. It was the (unintended) financial profit from this 1981 Congress that laid the foundation for the Larry Calvert Fund.

A version of this image was also published in "La Symétrie Bidimensionelle et le Canada", by François Brisse, Canadian Mineralogist, Vol. 19, pp. 217-224 (1981) as the figure titled: "Feuille d'érable - p4g - Maple Leaf". The entire article is reprinted below with permission from the editor of Canadian Mineralogist, Robert F. Martin.

Canadian National Flag

Canadian Flag

The current Canadian flag was officially inaugurated on February 15, 1965, replacing the "Red Ensign" flag of Canada in use at that time.

The "design was submitted by former Ontario Liberal MP John Matheson and was crafted by Dr. George Stanley, dean of arts at Royal Military College in Kingston [Ontario]."
Alan Beddoe, a retired naval captain and heraldic adviser to the Royal Canadian Navy, and Colonel Fortescue Duguid, a heraldist and historian. Both favoured a three-leaf design and played a decisive role in the choice of the flag. Mr. Matheson, an Ontario Member of Parliament, was perhaps one of the strongest supporters of a new flag and played a key advisory role. Dr. Stanley, Dean of Arts at the Royal Military College in Kingston, brought to the attention of the committee the fact that the Commandant's flag at the College - a maple leaf on a red and white ground - was quite attractive.
