11 Rejected Canadian Flag Designs

Canadian independence was a gradual process. Even as recently as 1965, it had no official national flag. This became a major political issue, so the government invited citizens to contribute designs.

Adrienne Crezo of Mental Floss rounded up 11 of the strangest ones among the 3,451 submitted. This one was intended to represent national unity, but, Adrienne writes, it "looks something like a shoe company logo."

You can view other submissions at the link, including comical suggestions, such as a flag with The Beatles.
