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" ) but I suspect it's just a national pride thing? Or perhaps it's the Canadan Ad Council or something like that?

Quoting Airplay (Reply 3): Quoting Yyz717 (Reply 2):
That's the official logo of the Cdn govt. So anything that has govt funding or sponsorship will invariably sport that logo.
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.
