Canadian Native Flag Pin
We hope this flag brings a better understanding of the First Nations of our country and a vision for a unified Canada that still revels in its diversity.
Wear it with pride!

The symbolism of the flag
The two designs on the red side bands are K’utala-Salmon. Salmon seemed the perfect way to convey the importance of family, friendships, and strength in numbers. There are as many types of people living here in Canada as there are types of salmon.
Salmon are known for dependability and renewal. Kwakwaka’wakw people think of them as a provider and a symbol of fertility and good health. The salmon is the source of life for the Kwakwaka’wakw people and they depend upon the salmon as the main food source.
The design within the maple leaf is a head of a killer whale in the shape of an oval. The killer whale head is surrounded by some traditional use designs called split “U” shapes.
