The history of the Canadian maple leaf emblem goes back to the early 1700s when it was used by the French Canadians along the Saint Lawrence River. In the 1830s, Jacques Viger, the first mayor of Montreal, described the maple as "the king of our forest... the symbol of the Canadian people." Put on some Canadian patriotic fervor with this lovely cockade! Approximately 2.5" across. Choose pin back or ornament loop.
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
