This might sound like a dumb question but whenever I go to the website of the Toronto Star, I look at some of the ads on the website and see a small, yet noticeable logo in the corner that says "Canada" with the flag over the last "a."

My question is, why is that there on so many ads? Is there a company which funds these ads and has to have their logo included?

Well, I'm no Canadan (yeah, I spelled it right... I love my neighbors to the north... but I do not support their "i"  Wink) but I suspect it's just a national pride thing? Or perhaps it's the Canadan Ad Council or something like that?

That's the official logo of the Cdn govt. So anything that has govt funding or sponsorship will invariably sport that logo.


Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

That's correct. I thought however you might want to hear it from a real Canadian.

Airplay is correct! It is known as the Canadian "Watermark" and you will see it on any government newspaper ad or any other form of advertising by the Canadian Government, as a graphic designer when I'm working on a design for them it is always included.

Thanks for the input guys (and girl)! I didn't know that's what it was since there is no "official government logo" over here. But I guess I was close enough with my guess.

In case anyone doesn't know what is being talked about...



and as said before, it is the logo for the Government of Canada.

There are ones for each province too i think.



It actually seems strange to me (being from England) for a government to have a logo!

I agree. The whole concept does sound a bit alien to me as I know there is no "official" government logo other than the "Great Seal of the USA" which practically every country has too.
