Which Logo Will Be Chosen For Canada’s Sesquicentennial (150th)?

In 2017, Canada turns 150.

That’s a “milestone” birthday–known as a sesquicentennial–and the government will be doing a lot of special things to celebrate that year.

In anticipation of 2017, the government tested five different logos to decide which one would best represent the country’s 150th.

The logos were designed by the Department of Canadian Heritage, a department in the Canadian government that is responsible for programs relating to the arts, culture, official languages and multiculturalism.

Each logo features the colour red and has a maple leaf, like the Canadian flag.

And each logo features the number 150 and the word Canada.
