Canadian photographer Aoifa Anctil captured this image of a young girl running through a field with the Canadian flag and her brother following close behind. The horizon in the distance and the great expanse of sky convey the vast landscapes that characterize Canada. Vibrant red and white give the flag movement and highlight its design. The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt with "20 DOLLARS" and "ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA" engraved along the outer edge of the coin is on the obverse.
Photographer Aoifa Anctil was driving near Sherwood Park (Alberta) when an old barn caught her eye, "Light is fleeting. You have to grab the opportunity when it's there. My kids jumped out of the car and started running with the Canada Flag. It was the perfect shot."
Did you know…
- Historically speaking, Canada's National Flag is quite young. It's only 54 years old. Anyone born after 1965 might view the red-and-white maple leaf flag as a lifelong fixture. However, older generations will remember the Red Ensign that preceded Canada's current flag.
- People who study flags are "vexillologists." Many of them consider Canada's National Flag one of the world's most beautiful because of its simple bold design and colours. It's the only national flag featuring a maple leaf.
- There are five flags on Parliament Hill: one on the Peace Tower, two on Centre Block, and one on the West and East Blocks. Any Canadian resident can ask for a flag that has flown on Parliament Hill by contacting Public Services and Procurement Canada.
- The Flag Master replaces the flag on the Peace Tower every weekday. The rest are changed every week. It takes about 30 minutes to replace the Peace Tower flag. The Flag Master takes an elevator to the observation deck, and then climbs another 33 metres of stairs and ladders to get to the flagpole. Flags can never touch the ground.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
