(flag) Do you know what the red and the white colors
Pupil 1:History records that in the First Crusade Bohemund I, a Norman lord, had
red crosses cut from his mantles and distributed to the 12,000 crusaders, who
wore them as a distinctive badge on their garments. In subsequent crusades,
each nation was distinguished by a cross of a different colour. France long had
a red cross on its banners while England used a white cross. Time and again in
history red and white are found as the colours of France or of England. Red and
white were approved as Canada's official colours in the proclamation of her
coat of arms in 1921
(maple leaf)Pupil 2:In 1957, the colour of the maple leaves on the shield of the Royal Arms
of Canada was changed from green on a white ground to red on a white ground in
recognition of Canada's official colours.
What is the origin of the word Canada?
Pupil 3: In 1535, two Indian Youths told
Jacques Cartier about the route to "kanata." They were referring to
the village of Stadacona; "kanata" was simply the Huron-Iroquois word
for "village" or "settlement." But for want of another
name, Cartier used "Canada" to refer not only to Stadacona (the site
of present day Quebec City), but also to the entire area subject to its chief,
Donnacona. The name was soon applied to a much larger area: maps in 1547
designated everything north of the St. Lawrence River as "Canada. "Cartier
also called the St. Lawrence River the "rivière de Canada", a name
used until the early 1600s. By 1616, although the entire region was known as
New France, the area along the great river of Canada and the Gulf of St.
Lawrence was still called Canada. Soon explorers and fur traders opened up
territory to the west and to the south and the area depicted as
"Canada" grew. In the early 1700s, the name referred to all lands in
what is now the American Midwest and as far south as the present day Louisiana.
The first use of "Canada" as an official name came in 1791 when the
Province of Quebec was divided into the colonies of Upper and Lower Canada. In
1841, the two Canadas were again united under one name, the Province of Canada.
At the time of Confederation, the new country assumed the name of Canada.
